The method of analysis. Its geometrical origin and its general significance. Hintikka, J. and Remes, U. Volume 4 , D. Reidel Publishing Company., 1977.
abstract   bibtex   
from Phil.Index: In this book the authors offer a new interpretation of the only extensive ancient description of the method of analysis, viz the one found in Pappus. Their interpretation removes the stigma of inconsistency from Pappus' description, but gives rise to new problems. In order to solve them, the authors analyse the method for matematical practice and the mathematical terminology of the Greeks. The central part of the book is a close discussion of the systematical logical sources of the heuristic usefulness of the analytical method. This discussion relates the ancient methode closely to certain techniques of modern logic.
