BOOK I

ON THE ORIGIN, CLASSES, ORDER, AND DISTINGUISHING FEATURES OF THE REGULAR FIGURES WHICH GIVE RISE TO HARMONIC PROPORTIONS, FOR THE SAKE OF KNOWLEDGE AND CONSTRUCTION OF THEM.

 

Proclus Diadochus in Book I of his Commentary on Euclid Book I.

(Mathematics) contributes things of the greatest importance to the study of nature, both revealing the orderly nature of the reasoning, in accordance with which the WHOLE has been constructed, and so on, and showing that the simple and primary elements, by means of which the whole of heaven was completed, having taken on the appropriate forms among it's parts, are connected together with symmetry and regularity.
