Description

A fascinating science-fiction story with some biting, funny satire of Victorian society, Edwin Abbott's
Flatland still has a lot to say about modern life, mathematics, people, philosophy and our perceptions of
reality. The story takes us to a two-dimensional world where all the inhabitants are flat geometric shapes,
and who are all firmly convinced that "length and width" is all there is. But one enterprising shape
discovers the existence of a third physical dimension, which leads to speculation about a fourth
dimension - and that changes everything.
