    Mathematical Diagrams From Manuscript to Print: Examples From the Arabic Euclidean Transmission.Gregg De Young - 2012 - Synthese 186 (1):21-54.
    In this paper, I explore general features of the “architecture” (relations of white space, diagram, and text on the page) of medieval manuscripts and early printed editions of Euclidean geometry. My focus is primarily on diagrams in the Arabic transmission, although I use some examples from both Byzantine Greek and medieval Latin manuscripts as a foil to throw light on distinctive features of the Arabic transmission. My investigations suggest that the “architecture” often takes shape against the backdrop of an educational (...)

  2. Further Adventures of the Rome 1594 Arabic Redaction of Euclid’s Elements.Gregg De Young - 2012 - Archive for History of Exact Sciences 66 (3):265-294.
    This article takes up the adventure of the Arabic version of the Elements published in Rome at the Typographia Medicea in 1594 at the point where the first installment ended. In this new installment of the adventure, we situate the Rome edition within a stemma of connected Arabic copies spanning some four centuries. We show that the text of the Rome edition was typeset from Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, Or. 20 and that Or. 20 in turn was copied from Or. 50. (...)

    Ex Aequali Ratios in the Greek and Arabic Euclidean Traditions.Gregg De Young - 1996 - Arabic Sciences and Philosophy 6 (2):167.
    Euclid discusses the ex aequali relationship twice in the Elements. The first is in Book V, during his discussion of arithmetical relations between mathematical magnitudes in general. The second is in Books VIIIX, he was not much troubled by the differences between his treatment of ex aequali ratios in these two contexts. Later generations of mathematicians, however, found these differences less acceptable and tried to minimize them in various ways. This paper summarizes Euclid's use of the ex aequali relation in (...)

    Should Science Be Limited? Some Modern Islamic Perspectives.Gregg De Young - 1996 - The Monist 79 (2):280-293.
    "Are those who know equal to those who do not know?". In the Hadith similar sentiments are expressed; "The seeking of knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim". These demands to attain knowledge have been deeply inscribed on the hearts of pious Muslims everywhere. Nevertheless, there have been discussions historically over whether every statement claiming to be valid knowledge should be accepted under such injunctions. Knowledge of nature is one such area of concern. Should the results of natural philosophy or science (...)
