Summary
"In this volume specialists from several disciplines present the first comprehensive, readily-accessible analysis of Grassmann's thought, its historical context and emergence, its reception, and its continuing influence on many branches of learning. The book addresses a general public in mathematics, physics, and linguistics, including graduate students in these fields, as well as historians of these disciples."--Jacket
