| In this lively and engaging lecture, Dauben presents a fascinating look at Georg Cantor and the development of transfinite set theory. Dauben traces the evolution of Cantorian set theory with an emphasis on the opposition it met from Cantor's contemporaries. The use of photographs and other illustrations bring the subject to life as Dauben paints a gripping portrait of the brilliant but tormented life of Georg Cantor. |
