This collection of survey lectures in mathematics traces the career of Beno Eckmann, whose work ranges across a broad spectrum of mathematical concepts from topology through homological algebra to group theory. One of our most influential living mathematicians, Eckmann has been associated for nearly his entire professional life with the Swiss Federal Technical University (ETH) at Zurich, as student, lecturer, professor, and professor emeritus.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The book under review is a collection of twenty-one survey or expository lectures given by its distinguished author during the period 1943 and 2004 ... . All are (broadly) in the fields of topology, algebra and differential geometry. ... Students will learn an important and substantial swathe of 20th century geometrical mathematics by carefully reading this delightful book." (Ross Geoghegan, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2008 c)

"The papers are arranged chronologically, and cover more than 60 years of work. ... The collection is rounded out by a couple essays on the place of mathematics in culture and its future. ... I heartily recommend adding it to your library." (John McCleary, MAA Online, February, 2009)
