Political Logic
  • Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B.: I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth.
Joan Chittister



The texts on FreeMathTexts.org are reasonable in that they acknowledge a number of facts namely:
So, in contrast with the currently available standard textbooks, the texts to be found on FreeMathTexts.org A further discussion of these facts, and of how the texts on FreeMathTexts.org attempt to take them into consideration, can be found in Chapter Thirteen.

Two more facts govern the development of the texts on FreeMathTexts.org, namely that:
As of this date, two titles have been completed and one is in progress. All are freely available:

There are of course other possible approaches to mathematical exposition. For instance, Santos' amazing texts follow the Edmund Landau style of presentation.

Another one of the very few authors of texts off the beaten path and to be taken most seriously is Herb Gross and his texts and videos are to be found here. I should disclose the fact that Gross' treatment of Arithmetic and mine in Reasonable Decimal Arithmetic are very reminescent of each other and that, upon my discovery of his work, I wrote to him which resulted in a very pleasant exchange.

More generally, there are several sites in which free mathematical texts can be found such as Online Mathematics Textbooks, Online Science and Math Textbooks, etc. And then there is iBerry, with Open CourseWare and Higher Education Resources, which describes itself as the first academic porthole", that is as "a small but cheerful window in the side of the Higher Education ship for purposes of illumination and enlightenment.
