In A Brief History of Infinity, the infinite in all its forms - viewed from the perspective of mathematicians, philosophers and theologians - is explored, as Zellini strives to explain this fundamental principle. What is the difference between true and false infinity? How might we explain away the puzzle of Zeno's paradox? And how is the concept of infinity helping us as we wrestle with the fundamental uncertainties of the quantum world? Paolo Zellini shows that the concept of the infinite is a multifaceted one, and demonstrates the manner in which humanity has attempted to comprehend that concept for millennia.
