Constructing theories: A case study in geometry, with an extension to biology
K. P. Mohanan, Tara Mohanan
This book is an attempt to introduce the reader to the art and craft of theory construction. While we use geometry as the terrain for practice, our focus is on the methodological strategies and techniques of value in all domains of theory construction, not on the ‘facts’ of geometry that students learn in textbooks. We expect the series to be useful for researchers and research students across disciplines, but have also tried to make the content and the style accessible to high school students.
