Resumen:
This work brings together the limits of science and the furthest horizons of the imagination. With wit and ease, Rucker leads us through the arguments of mathematicians, physicists and philosophers, through the paradoxes of set theory, the mind-stretching concepts of space/time physics, and the staggering results of Godels incompleteness theorems.

Resumen:

This work brings together the limits of science and the furthest horizons of the imagination. With wit and ease, Rucker leads us through the arguments of mathematicians, physicists and philosophers, through the paradoxes of set theory, the mind-stretching concepts of space/time physics, and the staggering results of Godels incompleteness theorems. Rucker's own personal encounters with Godel the man, the mathematician and the philosopher provide a rare glimpse at genius, and reveal what very few mathematicians have dared to admit - the transcedent implications of Platonic realism. Infinity and the mind is for anyone who has pondered the immensity of the cosmos; for anyone who has tried to imagine the infinitely large and the infinitesimally small. It is a book for lovers of paradoxes and ideas - the very limits of science and mind.
