The Emergence of Calculus: A Mathematical Journey of Human Thought

Ten years ago, I was sitting by the window of a library, the same one I still attend today. I purposely sat there because it was raining, and I enjoyed watching the movements of the raindrops cluttering against the window. I opened my book to the page where I had left off, and after a while, I read a sentence that sparked my curiosity immediately. The author, who called himself “a curious character,” said, “I have to understand the world, you see.” This sincere sentence was so profound for a young, curious math student like myself. It was such an “Aha” moment for me that I felt as if I should buy a cup of tea for everyone sitting at the library, and even have a long discussion about the book that would last until the next morning.
