      Archimedes

      by Thomas Little Heath

      Excerpt


      Xthese things were, however, in his case the diversions of geometry at and he attached no importance to them. In the words of Plutarch, he possessed so lofty a spirit, so profound a soul, and such a wealth of scientific knowledge that, although these inventions had won for him the renown of more than human sagacity, yet he would not consent to leave behind him any written work on such subjects, but, regarding as ignoble and sordid the business of mechanics and every sort of art which is directed to practical utility, he placed his whole ambition in those speculations in the beauty and subtlety of which Where is no admixture of the common needs of life.
