An actually infinite set is what we today call a “transfinite set.

What about Leibniz’s infinitesimals or Newton’s fluxions? Was it proper of Thomson to suppose that the question of whether the lamp is lit or dark at the end of the minute must have a determinate answer?

Zeno’s paradoxes

Intuitively, a continuum is a continuous entity; it is a whole thing that has no gaps. When Achilles reaches x 2having als an additional distance d 2the tortoise has moved on to point x 3requiring Achilles to cover an additional distance d 3and so forth. In the mid-twentieth century, Hermann Weyl, Max Black, James Thomson, and others objected, and thus began an ongoing controversy about the number of tasks that can be completed in a finite time.

Consider a plurality of things, such as some people and some mountains. Aristotle’s treatment of the paradoxes does not employ these fruitful concepts of mathematical physics.

It implies paradokas complete, with no dependency on some process in time.

Epea scholars claim Zeno influenced the mathematicians to use the indirect method of proof reductio ad absurdumbut others disagree and say it may have been the other way around. Well, the parts cannot be so small as to have no size since adding such things together would never contribute anything to the whole so far as size is concerned. They are taken one instant apart. Nick Paaradojas argues that Zeno is assuming the conclusion when he says that objects that occupy the same space ,as they do at rest must be at rest.


As a Field for Scientific Method in Philosophy. Journal of Mathematical Physics. Svenska Vetenskaps-Akademien HandlingarBd. Here is how Aristotle expressed the point: In the fifth century B.

It points out that, although Zeno was correct in paardojas that at any point or instant before reaching the goal there is always some as yet uncompleted path to cover, this does not imply that the goal is never reached.

These have a size, a zero size according to quantum electrodynamicsbut it is incorrect to conclude that the whole stick has no size if its constituents have zero size. Here is a graph using the methods of the Standard Solution to show the activity of Achilles as he chases the tortoise and overtakes it. Philosophical paradoxes Supertasks Mathematics paradoxes Paradoxes of infinity Physical paradoxes. The Achilles Argument presumes that space and time are continuous or infinitely divisible.

The Bs are moving to the right, and the Cs are moving with the same speed to the left. This method of indirect proof or reductio dde absurdum probably originated with his teacher Parmenides zdnon this is disputed in the scholarly literature], but Zeno used it more systematically. University of Chicago Press. The historical record is not clear. Both are moving along a linear path at constant speeds. Every real number is a unique Dedekind cut. If so, then choice 2 above is the one to think about.

Therefore, each part of a plurality will be so large as to be infinite. By a similar argument, Zeno can establish that nothing else moves. For other uses, see Achilles and the Tortoise disambiguation.


Because many of the arguments turn crucially on the notion that space and time are infinitely divisible, Zeno was the first person to show that the concept of infinity is problematical. There are few traces of Zeno’s reasoning here, but for reconstructions that give the strongest reasoning, we may say that the runner will not reach the final goal because there is too far to run, the sum is actually infinite.

Achilles, whom we can assume is the fastest runner of antiquity, is racing to catch the tortoise that is slowly crawling away from him. Routledge Dictionary of Philosophy.

If so, then each of these parts will have two spatially distinct sub-parts, one in front of the other. The continuum is a very elsa set; it is the standard model of the real numbers. Well, the paradox could be interpreted this way. Lesser HippiasH. It would have been helpful for Aristotle to have said more about what are today called the Fallacies of Division and Composition that Zeno is committing.

Physical space is not a linear continuum because it is three-dimensional and not linear; but it has one-dimensional subspaces such as paths of runners and orbits of planets; and these are linear continua if we use the path created by only one point on the runner and the orbit created by only one point on the planet.
