The Infinite in Mathematics

£50.00

Product description

1978 paperback edition, first English translation. Printed by D Reidel. Spine in good condition, has one break in it, also some signs of sunning. Outside cover shows some signs of shelf wear, pages in good condition and unmarked. Overall in very good condition.

Felix Kaufmann (1895-1949) attended meetings of the Vienna Circle regularly and was a bridge between the Circle and the phenomenological movement, of which he was later one of the leading exponents at the New school in New York.
This early (1930) characteristics work and the authors own favourite, combines the best features of both schools. Its main thesis - that all transfinite notions in mathematics serve merely to facilitate the perspicuous formulations of statements essentially finite - is based on a number of analyses, partly still valid or indicative of unsolved problems and partly the reflexion of the state of foundational studies at the time.
