Alfred Tarski (1901–1983) was once a well known Polish/American mathematician, an immense of the 20th century, who helped determine the rules of geometry, set concept, version idea, algebraic common sense and common algebra. all through his profession, he taught arithmetic and good judgment at universities and occasionally in secondary colleges. a lot of his writings prior to 1939 have been in Polish and remained inaccessible to so much mathematicians and historians until eventually now.

This self-contained ebook specializes in Tarski’s early contributions to geometry and arithmetic schooling, together with the recognized Banach–Tarski paradoxical decomposition of a sphere in addition to high-school mathematical issues and pedagogy. those subject matters are major because Tarski’s later learn on geometry and its foundations stemmed partially from his early employment as a high-school arithmetic instructor and teacher-trainer. The ebook comprises cautious translations and masses newly exposed social historical past of those works written in the course of Tarski’s years in Poland.

Alfred Tarski: Early paintings in Poland serves the mathematical, academic, philosophical and historic groups by means of publishing Tarski’s early writings in a extensively available shape, offering heritage from archival paintings in Poland and updating Tarski’s bibliography.
