To the Infinite and
Workbook in Projective Geometry
By Henrike Holdrege
Great Barrington, MA: The Evolving Science Association, 2019.
Spiral bound workbook, 103 pages, $18.
To the Infinite and Back Again provides numerous exercises that foster clarity of thought and precision in imagination. This richly illustrated book is a practice-oriented introduction to projective geometry. In working through the exercises we learn to think transformatively and to experience a beautiful thought world in which ideas weave, grow, and metamorphose.
The book leads in a careful step-by-step fashion to the challenging idea of the infinite. We learn to think this mind-expanding concept, a concept that opens up whole new ways of understanding. We begin to see that everything finite gains wholeness and coherence when we conceive of the infinite.
As a fruit of the author’s many years of teaching, this workbook is
intended for self-study by the lay-person and is a unique resource for
high school and college math teachers.
