Additional info[edit]

There is significant amounts of information on Michael Stifel in Howard Eves "An Introduction the the History of Mathematics" between pages 270 and 272 if anyone has the time to properly add and cite it. Hcir614 (talk) 01:34, 26 November 2008 (UTC)


" The German saying "to talk a Stiefel" or "to calculate a Stiefel" (Stiefel is the German word for boot) meaning to say or calculate nonsense can be traced back to this incident.[1] " From current point of view this rare oral german saying is a verbal "derailment" and an insult to the living persons named Stiefel/Stifel. ( see also www.verwandt.de/karten/absolut/stiefel.html ) It affects about 2000 persons in Germany and estimated about 2000 persons in US. This rare oral saying is no substantial contribution to the person Michael Stifel.
