Book Description1930. This is the autobiography of Jerome Cardan, a celebrated Renaissance mathematician, physician, astrologer and gambler. During his lifetime he made major contributions to algebra and to probability, hydrodynamics, mechanics and geology. Cardan was the first to study such things as dice rolling, or probability theory. But all was not rosy in Cardan's life and he writes in this volume that the four greatest sadnesses in his life were: his marriage; the execution of his son, Giambatista, for poisoning his wife; his imprisonment on the charge of heresy; and the base character of his youngest son, Aldo.
