Description
Philosophers and mathematicians have gone mad—in some cases, literally so—contemplating the nature of infinity, yet it is a concept we now introduce to schoolchildren. Thoroughly readable and accessible, science writer Brian Clegg's lively history explores the rather troubling concept of infinity in its many facets, from its ancient origins to its place today at the heart of mathematics and science. He examines infinity's paradoxes and profiles the people who first grappled with and then defined and refined them, and offers information, mystery, and poetry to help conceive of the inconceivable.
