Reviews - What do customers think about Measure of a Different Greatness: The Intensive Infinite, 1250-1650 (Studien Und Texte Zur Geistesgeschichte Des Mittelalters)?

Science, Religion and Politics in the Middle Ages  Apr 25, 2000
This book is a massive scholarly survey of a subject which has not received much attention: the development of concepts of the actual (as opposed to potential) infinite in the Latin West. In the 11th and 12th centuries this was mainly a theological discussion, but it also involved science, via Aristotle, and religion mainly via Augustine and a large number of contemporary theologians. The book ends with Kepler, Descartes and Pascal, and the Scientific Revolution in the 17th century, in which the medieval developments played a central role by allowing ideal conditions to be proposed as the basis for theory. This book is heavy reading, but is an essential source for scholars of this subject.
