Description

The astrophysicist Trinh Xuan Thuan here offers us a fascinating book on a bewildering subject: in simple terms, he explains to us what the infinite is, according to mathematical, astronomical and cosmological sciences, all the while constantly reminding us that the infinite is also the true domain of theologians and philosophers. Therefore, the infinite assumes many differing appearances which Trinh Xuan Thuan introduces us to in an educational style which is scientific, philosophical and poetic.
