A rare, mid-18th-century work by Christian von Wolff. Wolff, an eminent German philosopher, wrote “Anfangsgründe” in 1710. Also known as “Elementa Matheseos Universae”, this work covers a vast set of topics including arithmetic, geometry, trigonometry, mechanics, hydraulics, optics, perspective, astronomy, geography, gnomonics, and artillery. This 1758 Latin second edition features 21 folding engravings depicting:

  • Geometry problems and figures
  • Astronomical and navigational studies
  • Physical science experiments
    • Behavior of light, water, etc.

 

Wolff’s philosophy was well balanced between logic and rationalism. He occasionally studied cosmology, but most of his studies were rooted in proofs even though many of his beliefs followed the existence and attributes of God.
