A SHORT HISTORY OF INFINITY. The symbol for infinity that one sees most often is the lazy eightcurve, technically called the lemniscate. This symbol was first used ina seventeenth century treatise on conic sections.1It caughton quickly and was soon used to symbolize infinity or eternity in avariety of contexts.

Plotinus believed that in their original state all souls were pure rational beings, logoi or logika, alike and equal in their contemplation of the Infinity in Plotinus book intellect and in perfect communion with it.

10 However, these rational beings turned away from their contemplation of the Good and assumed material bodies. The “fall” of the rational beings is considered by both Plotinus and Origen as a consequence.

The book deals with an undeniably important concept (infinity obviously); it grounds its discussion in the history of the subject from the time it was approached by Anaximander, through Aristotle, Plotinus, mediaeval thinkers, Leibniz, Kant and their successors, and on to Cantor, Brouwer, Wittgenstein and other more modern work; it treats seriously philosophers such as Heidegger and 5/5(5).

First Tractate ON THE KINDS OF BEING- (1). Philosophy at a very early stage investigated the number and character of the Existents.

Various theories resulted: some declared for one Existent, others for a finite number, others again for an infinite number, while as regards the nature of the Existents- one, numerically finite, or numerically infinite- there was a similar disagreement. Against Plotinus, however, it may be objected that true infinity is as little consistent with his doctrine of emanations as with the more or less pantheistic tendencies of the Indian philosophy.

The Christian writers took their concepts of the infinity of God from the Bible; the speculative development of these ideas, however, needed time.

this would mean that a motion just begun has been in progress from an infinity of time. This chapter analyzes Plotinus’ refutation of the Aristotle’s criticism of Plato’s view of number in the Parmenides.

By rejecting any quantitative value of number in the intelligible realm, Plotinus specifically focuses on Aristotle’s inability to understand the Monad and the Indefinite Dyad as the principles of creation and order of the intelligible. Informally expressed, any infinite set can be matched up to a part of itself; so the whole is equivalent to a part.

This is a surprising definition because, before this definition was adopted, the idea that actually infinite wholes are equinumerous with some of their parts was taken as clear evidence that the concept of actual infinity is inherently paradoxical.
