About the lecture

In this module, we think about what we mean when we talk about the infinite, focusing in particular on (i) the two different kinds of infinity – the mathematical or scientific conception, and the metaphysical one; (ii) the relation between these two conceptions of the infinite; and (iii) the concepts of the infinite that are not included in this course.
