Though-provoking exploration of dimensionality and perspective. ( )
  AlexanderPatico | Jul 20, 2021 |
An exhortation to use one's imagination. Though the language is charmingly old-fashioned and the allegory of Victorian England somewhat dated, Abbott still inveigled me to imagine the "extra-Cube" of hyperspace. Like the poor square, I have difficulty visualizing where to put the seventh and eighth cubes that would form the "sides" of that extra-Cube, but it's been fun to try! Abbott's vision of a "modest" humanity that is more enlightened than our present one is also touching. ( )

Never thought geometry could be so full of fun and funny characters. The part about the angle shrinking and brain decreasing with women having very small brains was really funny. ( )

This one should be required reading in geometry class. A fun story that helps illustrate the idea of higher dimensions through conversation between 2D and 1D creatures and finally 3D and 2D creatures. ( )

Edwin Abbott’s book is one that has shadowed me for decades. When I was in school growing up I saw it listed as a text to students taking math classes, though never in one of the ones in which I was enrolled. Seeing it referenced in a couple of the short stories that I read demonstrated its influence on science fiction, but I still was not motivated to read it for myself. It was only when I wanted to encourage my son’s aptitude for math that I purchased a copy and sat down to read it with him.

When I did so, I was surprised by what I encountered. Based on its reputation, I was expecting a novel about three-dimensional beings interacting with a two-dimensional world. That indeed forms an important part of the book, but it’s preceded by a section describing the history and social order of Abbott’s fictional universe. Though Abbott subsequently claimed that much of it was intended to be satirical, the criticism in his description of the misogyny of Flatland and the inhabitants’ practice of eugenics it’s so subtle as to be effectively nonexistent. In its way it offers an interesting portrait of late-Victorian social attitudes and it does have a sharp critique against the suppression of knowledge, but it’s in many respects a jarring aspect of a book best known today for its imaginative exploration of mathematical space.

This Work is Dedicated
By a Humble Native of Flatland
In the Hope that

Having been previously conversant
With ONLY TWO
So the Citizens of that Celestial Region
May aspire yet higher and higher
To the Secrets of FOUR FIVE OR EVEN SIX Dimensions
Thereby contributing
To the Enlargement of THE IMAGINATION
And the possible Development
Of that most rare and excellent Gift of MODESTY
Among the Superior Races
Of SOLID HUMANITY
