Sam

Mathematics student at ETH Zürich.

Spivak on Bourbaki (in the bibliography to his comprehensive introduction):

"Bourbaki is the originator of that famous pedagogical method whereby one begins with the general and proceeds to the particular only after the student is too confused to understand even that any more. His influence is to be seen everywhere, probably in these volumes too. Bourbaki has apparently decided that the theory of manifolds has now entered that domain of 'dead' mathematics to which he hopes to give definitive form. In this summary of results the corpse is laid out to public view; the complete autopsy is eagerly awaited."
