Embark on a History of Mathematics Learning Journey across time and cultures.  Join author and tour guide Bernat Espigulé in a millennia-long journey from Socrates’s geometry problem to Alexander Graham Bell’s long-forgotten mathematical discovery.

Learn about one of the most famous problems of antiquity, doubling the cube.  And understand why the square-cube law was frequently invoked by 19th-century mathematicians to deter bold inventors and dreamers from the quest to achieve controlled, powered flights.
