Re: Euclidean Geometry

Unfortunately, all too often the phrase Euclidean geometry has become code for what 100 years ago was called modern geometry. It is no longer modern, though there are many Euclidean problems that are. Classical nonEuclidean geometry often makes relatively few connections with revitalized aspects of these same subjects. Often the key to interest in these newer areas is applications; unfortunately, there is still bias against applicability, especially in geometry.
