The Infinite

Synopsis

This historical study of the infinite covers all its aspects from the mathematical to the mystical. Anyone who has ever pondered the limitlessness of space and time, or the endlessness of numbers, or the perfection of God will recognize the special fascination of the subject. Beginning with an entertaining account of the main paradoxes of the infinite, including those of Zeno, A. W. Moore traces the history of the topic from Aristotle to Kant, Hegel, Cantor, and Wittgenstein.
