But in plane geometry, length and area are the magnitudes themselves, not numbers. Despite the anachronistic grammatical structure of the translation, it's actually quite an enjoyable read. And this was accomplished by no less a mathematician than Carl Frederich Gauss in 1796, when he was just 18.
Neither the spurious books 14 and 15, nor the extensive scholia which have been added to the Elements.
The only supplement I needed whose need derived from the presentation was for Book XIII, Number 16, where several on-line sources have color-coding adding helpfully to the complex schematic. Introduction to the works of Euclid with an Emphasis on the Elements first posted to the web in 1995 jump to: • The inception of this new doctrine of forms or ideas begins with the transitional dialogue Theatetus, but it is only in Philebus that Plato gives a complete account of his new doctrine.
So, I'm not sure how much further I'm going to take this. Draw two diameters AC and BD of the circle ABCD at right angles to one another, and join AB, BC, CD, and DA. Triangles which are on equal bases and in the same parallels equal one another. The mythos of these paradigms is combined with its own unique imagery and Britannical historiography to explicate its often nearly impenetrable mysteries.
Euclid's method consists in assuming a small set of intuitively appealing , and deducing many other from these.
Most of the propositions, however, are not constructions.
