Algebraic Geometry

Algebraic geometry as explored by Van der Waerden (1931-1939) established algebraic geometry as a more universal class which subsumed projective geometry, descriptive geometry and perspective. Van der Waerden focussed on algebraic varieties of projective space. Weil (1962) considered algebraic varieties of affine space. As a result, perspective, our chief means of visualizing the world tends to be classed under algebraic geometry which is non-visual.
