Is infinity a valid mathematical property or a meaningless abstraction? David Foster Wallace brings his intellectual ambition and characteristic bravura style to the story of how mathematicians have struggled to understand the infinite, from the ancient Greeks to the nineteenth-century mathematical genius Georg Cantors counterintuitive discovery that there was more than one kind of infinity. Smart, challenging, and thoroughly rewarding, Wallaces tour de force brings immediate and high-profile recognition to the bizarre and fascinating world of higher mathematics.
