Ever since Phidias (5th century B.C.) created “golden geometry” with his golden
ratio (a.k.a. the divine proportion), artists and mathematicians have been
scrutinizing the human face for its “golden plan.” The underlying assumption is
that the more golden relations, rectangles or triangles a face possesses the more
beautiful it will be. This theme was developed by the mathematician Matila Ghyka
in her fascinating book The Geometry of Art and Life (1946). Ricketts (1982) and

In D'Arcy Thompson's classic On Growth and Form, and Matila Ghyka's The
Geometry of Art and Life, Carolyn found that the Navajo were not alone in their
appreciation of a beauty/ harmony equation. Like the Navajo, Plato believed that
the universe exists in a state of perfect harmony. Platonic schools emphasized
four areas of study: astronomy, music, arithmetic, and geometry. Their
conceptions of beauty or aesthetics were derived from a sense of harmony in the
universe and a belief ...

The instances of Lambert treating problems projectively occur in connection with
his speculations about what he called Linealgeometrie (ruler geometry). This
theory is presented at the end of the chapter, following sections that deal with
Lambert's contributions to perspective proper. Chapter XIII contains a
presentation of the basic idea behind Monge's descriptive geometry and a
discussion of the similarities between this and Lambert's perspective geometry.
