'Moore's book points to deep and unresolved issues in the philosophy of mathematics, and even deeper issues in general philosophy ... It deserves serious study by both mathematicians and philosophers.' - Thomas Tymoczko, Philosophia Mathematica

'[Moore's treatment of] the problems with which the history of thought about the infinite confronts us today ... shows that questions concerning the nature and existence of the infinte are still very much alive ... The importance of [his] book lies ... in its highly stimulating account of the nature of infinity and its bold defence of finitism.' - W.L.Craig, International Philosophical Quarterly
