Welcome to Library!


The development of writing and books are the greatest achievements of humanity.Everything else-science, technology, literature, philosophy-is the fruit of writing and of thoughts that have been written down.


In order to study the history of humanity, especially science, philosophy and culture, it is necessary for valuable resources such as textbooks, monographs and articles to be accessible. With this goal in mind, we decided to create a virtual library in multiple languages. Hamlet Isaxanli’s “History of Science and Philosophy: Ancient Period” class for PhD students at Khazar University provided the idea for this virtual library. We have begun to collect materials.


We wish success to our readers!

Archimedes of Syracuse (Greek: Ἀρχιμήδης; c. 287 BC – c. 212 BC) was an Ancient Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. Although few details of his life are known, he is regarded as one of the leading scientists in classical antiquity.

Generally considered the greatest mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest of all time,Archimedes anticipated modern calculus and analysis by applying concepts of infinitesimals and the method of exhaustion to derive and rigorously prove a range of geometrical theorems, including the area of a circle, the surface area and volume of a sphere, and the area under a parabola. Other mathematical achievements include deriving an accurate approximation of pi, defining and investigating the spiral bearing his name, and creating a system using exponentiation for expressing very large numbers. He was also one of the first to apply mathematics to physical phenomena, founding hydrostatics and statics, including an explanation of the principle of the lever. He is credited with designing innovative machines, such as his screw pump, compound pulleys, and defensive war machines to protect his native Syracuse from invasion.
