Euclid and the ‘math’ of metaphysics

From the December 2013 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This article is an adapted transcript from the Journal podcast series, “Mary Baker Eddy Mentioned Them.”

Mary Baker Eddy mentions the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid three times in her published works. And Abraham Lincoln, as a horseback lawyer in rural Illinois, carried a copy of Euclid’s book The Elements in his saddlebag.
