In case you're not already doing it, make sure to read Homer all at once. Also I hope you enjoy Veblen; a cool book for sure.

I'm the "cunt" from above (not sure why he said that). Veblen is not mathematical in the slightest. The other guy is right in saying that it's not an easy read, but that's mostly because it's dense and builds on itself and Veblen's invented terms and concepts. You should take notes as you read, because basically if you gloss over any section, the book will get more and more confusing as you continue.
It's far from impossible. Maybe not "fun," but rewarding and fulfilling. I'm happy to have read it.
He's harder because of his writing style. He was writing when dense academic styles of the Victorians etc were popular, and the book is dense even for that standard. Archimedes and Coperniucs aren't as fusty.
Follow this cunt's advice >>7661196
cunt is my new terms of endearment and addressCopernicus and Archimedes have moments when you'll understand them in excerpts or just with basic knowledge of math. They're not the same beast as Velben where "wtf are you even saying to me" will probably happen to you a few times.
