This is a great introduction to the modern reaction to Zeno's paradoxes. The most important articles from Russell to the debates on infinity machines are included. The bibliography, at over 200 works, is the best I've seen. There is a mathematical bent to most of the articles, usually in the form of questions of infinity, or measure theory. Nonetheless, there are articles by philosophers who reject the idea of a completed infinity. I did a semester-long college project on Zeno's paradoxes, focusing on mathematical implications, and this was the most useful sourcebook by far.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a great survey of the notion of infinity, and the quality of the prose is, for the most part, very good. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in philosophy, mathematics, or the history of thought.

Format: Paperback
This book was obsolete before it was even published. It contains no material on nonstandard analysis, a subject which had been developed just a few years earlier, and nothing related to Smooth Infinitesimal Analysis, which was developed over the subsequent decade. The contributions give short shrift to the Arrow, the deepest of the paradoxes, and to the extent that the Arrow is discussed, the contributors miss the point entirely. (The point being that the derivative, which embodies instantaneous motion, depends classically for its definition on behavior at neighboring times.) Good information on the Arrow is still, to this day, hard to find. This book offers little or nothing to advance the topic. Cajori's history and modern research papers are much better sources.
