Contributed by Andrea Albrecht

The third part of this trilogy contains digressions in which Broch talks about logic, mathematical axioms, and projective geometry. According to these digressions, the lack of style of mathematics resembles the style of modernity.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
