Cantorian Set Theory and Limitation of Size by Michael Hallett

By Michael Hallett

Cantor's principles shaped the foundation for set conception and likewise for the mathematical remedy of the concept that of infinity. The philosophical and heuristic framework he constructed had a long-lasting impact on smooth arithmetic, and is the recurrent topic of this quantity. Hallett explores Cantor's rules and, specifically, their ramifications for Zermelo-Frankel set idea.

The problem, according to Lasswitz, lies in the fact that although Leibniz did indeed attempt to distinguish the geometric point (the spatial element) from the mechanical point (the conatus, the element of a trajectory), he failed to follow through with this approach, borrowing from Hobbes the concept of conatus without sharing his conception of the substantiality of the extension of bodies. His study of the continuum had led him to understand it as being made up of non-extensive elements that one could represent as lines, granted, but that should not have been conceived of as lines in the definition of the concept itself.

From this approach, Lasswitz notes, the philosopher was to retain above all the effect of ether and his concept of continuity. But Leibniz himself Leibniz’s Metaphysics as an Obstacle to the Mathematization 33 recognizes that he still doesn’t have the necessary mathematical tools: he doesn’t yet understand that something else is needed to explain motion, namely force. In regards to the various hypotheses about ether, Lasswitz asserts that none have much merit in comparison to other corpuscular theories.

And yet, he still ended up placing priority on the metaphysical account, and this is what prevented him from drawing full benefit from his mathematical thinking. Huygens, the height of the theory of matter If Lasswitz sees Huygens’s work as marking the apogee of the theory of matter, it is precisely because he was able to ground kinetic atomism even without formulating the last stage (due to his premature death). Exchanges with Leibniz provide the material to Lasswitz for pinpointing the decisive phase of his thinking.
