Descartes Dream: The World According to Mathematics by Philip J. Davis, Reuben Hersh

Rationalist philosopher and mathematician Rene Descartes visualized a world unified by mathematics, in which all intellectual issues could be resolved rationally by local computation. This series of provocative essays takes a modern look at the seventeenth-century thinkers dream, examining the physical and intellectual influences of mathematics on society, particularly in light of technological advances.
