Boek cover A Face in the Rock van Loren R. Graham (Paperback)
The Tale of a Grand Island Chippewa
Eight miles long and four miles wide, Grand Island lies off the south shore of Lake Superior. It was once home to a sizable community of Chippewa Indians who lived in harmony with the land and with each other. Their tragic demise began early in the nineteenth century when their fellow tribesmen from the mainland goaded them into waging war against rival Sioux. The war party was decimated; only one young brave, Powers of the Air, lived to tell the story that celebrated the heroism of his band and formed the basis of the legend that survives today. Distinguished historian Loren R. Graham has...

Boek cover Naming Infinity van Loren Graham (Hardcover)
A True Story of Religious Mysticism and Mathematical Creativity
In 1913, Russian imperial marines stormed an Orthodox monastery at Mt. Athos, Greece, to haul off monks engaged in a dangerously heretical practice known as Name Worshipping.

Boek cover In de naam van oneindigheid van Graham Loren (Paperback)
een waargebeurd verhaal over religieus mysticisme en wiskundige creativiteit
Een van de grootste wiskundige doorbraken in de twintigste eeuw, over het fenomeen 'oneindigheid', vond plaats in Rusland. Ondanks een zware concurrentiestrijd van Franse wiskundigen die zich verwoed op rationele oplossingen richtten, lieten de Russen zich leiden door de inzichten van een mystieke, verboden sekte, de Naamaanbidders, en kwamen tot de theorie die tot op de dag van vandaag geldt. 'In de naam van oneindigheid' vertelt het onvoorstelbare verhaal over de politieke strijd, de psychologische crises, de mystiek inspiratie en ethische dilemma's waar Franse en Russische wiskundigen in...
