Clean, tight, unmarked; crease to upper inside back corner; otherwise spine straight and uncreased; very minimal wear; appears unread; This book is an exploration of philosophical questions about infinity. Oppy examines how the infinite lurks everywhere, both in science and in our ordinary thoughts out the world. He also analyzes the many puzzles and paradoxes that follow in the train of the infinite. Even simple notions, such as counting, adding, and maximizing, present serous difficulties. Other topics examined include the nature of space and time, infinities in physical science, infinities in theories of probability and decision, the nature of part/whole relations, mathematical theories of the infinite, and infinite regression and principles of sufficient reason.
