THE MYSTERY OF THE ALEPH Mathematics, the Kabbalah, and the Search for Infinity

by | Read by Henry Leyva

History • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Russian-born Georg Cantor died in an insane asylum in 1918. But during his life, in his career as a mathematician, Cantor gave the scientific world set theory, the continuum hypothesis, and transfinite numbers. He discovered that infinity is as much an arithmetic concept as it is a religious one, and that there are numerous orders of infinity. Henry Leyva reads the story of Cantor and the other great minds in this history of infinity: the Pythagoreans and the Kabbalists, as well as Galileo, Balzano, Zermelo, and Godel. Leyva's reading is strong and persuasive, although his pronunciation of certain foreign names and terms is dubious. In all, a brilliant and enlightening story. S.E.S.
