Reflections and Mathematics from
Mathematics for Human Flourishing by Francis Su
Join our group to read and engage with Francis Su's thinking about how mathematics is intertwined with being human.
"I am saying that the pursuit of math can, if grounded in human desires, build aspects of character and habits of mind that will allow you to live a more fully human life and experience the best of what life has to offer." (Su, 2020, pp.g 12)
Together we'll reflect upon his thoughts from each chapter, and upon the math puzzles and tasks.
"For mathematician Francis Su, a society without mathematical affection is like a city without concerts, parks, or museums. To miss out on mathematics is to live without experiencing some of humanity's most beautiful ideas."
