Well known NPR commentator Keith Devlin writes about the history and current state of the field of Mathematics for the general reader. Along the way, he shows us how the invisible patterns behind the world that surrounds us can be deciphered with the help of this usually thought of as arid discipline of human knowledge. The reality is that Mathematics is a central part of our culture and we should perhaps be more familiar with it than we are.
