EUCLID'S ELEMENTS

Geometry reached its mature form around 300 BC, when Euclid connected all proofs that had been developed up to that point and showed they could al be derived from just 5 self-evident assumptions, known as axioms.


One of the axioms, for instance, tells us we can always connect two point with a line. Who could doubt that? Accepting the axioms, logic makes it necessary that the all of Euclids theorems are also correct.
