Euclid

Euclid was a Greek mathematician who became famous as the Father of Geometry. He was also known as Euclid of Alexandria, where he founded a school over 2,000 years ago. He published a 13 volume treatise called Elements, a collation of all the mathematics known at that time, which is the basis of geometry still taught in modern schools more than 2,000 years later.

Mathematicians

How is philosophy different from the other fields of study?

Philosophy is the study of everything, thinking of every possibility and every possibility within that possibility.

Most other fields only study what is within the realms of their field. It's not so much a study, as it is people using their fully functioning brain to contemplate all existing and nonexistent things, contemplating the reason for them and the reason for the reason, etc. It is an infinite form of thinking.

What was Euclid's biography?

Euclid is thought to have been born in Greece around 325 BC and received his early education in Athens. There is nothing known of his family background. Historians generally agree that he taught geometry in Alexandria, Egypt, during the reign of Ptolemy I, who ruled Egypt between 323 and 285 BC.

There is no record of the name of Euclid's spouse, if he ever married, or any information about other members of his family.

to make things well easier he is the father of geometry. he sat around all day calculating pi. just think how much time he must have had on is hands. btw he was born in Greece

What is the contribution of Euclid to the development of geometry?

For his major study, Elements, Euclid collected the work of many mathematicians who preceded him. Among these were Hippocrates of Chios, Theudius, Theaetetus, and Eudoxus. Euclid's vital contribution was to gather, compile, organize, and rework the mathematical concepts of his predecessors into a consistent whole, later to become known as Euclidean geometry.
