Examines the role of infinity in mathematics and geometry and its cultural impact on the arts and sciences. This book evokes the profound intellectual impact the infinite has exercised on the human mind - from the 'horror infiniti' of the Greeks to the works of M C Escher; from the ornamental designs of the Moslems, to the sage Giordano Bruno.
