*ὰγεωμὲρητος μηδϵὶς ϵἰσίτω*

The philosopher kings of Plato's Republic were to learn Geometry at the acme of their preparation to rule. The reasoning was not only due to Plato's geometrical view of Nature but also his view of abstraction.

Without taking sides on this particular philosopher—how much more would he have valued modern geometry? I'm interested in learning mathematics from this perspective: experiencing how "the most different" human language influences my thoughts about the everyday world.

(By the everyday world I mean love, money, and human diversity — things that seem far away from serious professional text.) In particular I'd like to be able to think up novel and creative ideas about non-mathematical things, using modern mathematical shapes.

Besides this broad personal project, I am also interested in applying modern mathematics to economic theory.
