Recently, I came across this book «Lost in math» that aroused my interest. Having read about half of it, I have to admit that I am not a big fan of Mrs. Hossenfelder's informal popular style of writing. Apart from that I have feeling that sometimes she jumps from one subject to another too freely and can't help but feel lost (I am not criticising, of course, merely describing my personal impression; judging by rather high Amazon's rating a lot of people have different opinion).
I would prefer some thing more strict, more structured, more academic, if you like (but not too academic for I am not a mathematician or theoretical physicist), about the same subject that is, as I would put it, elements of philosophical analysis of modern mathematics, its touch with reality and its relations with theoretical physics. Can you give me any suggestions please?
If you happen to have read classic book «Mathematics and the search for knowledge» by Morris Kline you, probably, understand what I mean. A nice book. It is somewhat outdated, though.
