Really enjoyed the series BUT Amir Alexander's BOOK Infinitesimal starts around Tartaglia where this series seems to stop and then takes right back up AFTER the creation of the Royal Society of London. There's a huge gap in the time-line. For 300 years there was no new math? What about the worlds Holier Than Thou treatment of Euclid geometry by certain institutions and how that cultural imperative stunted the growth of humanity in as much as off setting the industrial revolution by 100 years??? The effects of our treatment of Math, our understanding of understanding, has shaped our world more closely than we may be happy to admit.
