1 Review
Fluent description of the development of both the integral and differential calculus. Early beginnings in antiquity, medieval contributions, and a century of anticipation lead up to a consideration of Newton and Leibniz, the period of indecison that followed them, and the final rigorous formulation that we know today.

Classic. Still my go-to resource for most general topics in the history of mathematics, despite how old it is. Very thorough. Not exactly a fun read though. Read full review
