"The infinite! No other question has ever moved so profoundly the spirit of
man; no other idea has so fruitfully stimulated his intellect; yet no other
concept stands in greater need of clarification than that of the
infinite..." (David Hilbert)

This interdisciplinary study of infinity explores the concept through the
prism of mathematics and then offers more expansive investigations in areas
beyond mathematical boundaries to reflect the broader, deeper implications
of infinity for human intellectual thought. More than a dozen
world-renowned researchers in the fields of mathematics, physics,
cosmology, philosophy, and theology offer a rich intellectual exchange
among various current viewpoints, rather than displaying a static picture
of accepted views on infinity. The book starts with a historical
examination of the transformation of infinity from a philosophical and
theological study to one dominated by mathematics. It then offers technical
discussions on the understanding of mathematical infinity. Following this,
the book considers the perspectives of physics and cosmology: Can infinity
be found in the real universe? Finally, the book returns to questions of
philosophical and theological aspects of infinity.

A proof only becomes a proof after the social act of "accepting it as a
proof". (Yuri Manin)

Für manche ist die Zeit halt stehengeblieben.



Für mathematische Anfànger ist das Buch bestimmt interesant.
