The concept of infinity has been a topic of great interest for hundred of years, for scholars and lay people alike. The theory of infinte sets lies at the heart of much mathematics, yet it has produced a series of paradoxes that have led many scholars to doubt the soundness of its foundations. This work presents a popular-level account of the roads followed by human thought in attempts to understand the idea of the infinite in mathematics and physics. It aims to give the general reader a deep insight into the nature of the problem and its importance to an understanding of the world.
