Has anyone read Poe's "Eureka"? I was amazed when I came across this: http://www.mathpages.com/home/kmath522/kmath522.htm I still have to read his book, but it seems that Poe was an amazing philosopher/scientist in the grand old way, covering most of the disciplines of his time. I can't believe all I've ever heard about was "The Telltale Heart", "The Pit and the Pendulum", etc. What's the deal? Are his silly fiction stories overshadowing his good stuff, or is it just me? Do I need to go abuse my lit. teachers?
