Infinite Sets

INFINITE SETS….It turns out that one of my favorite authors, David Foster Wallace, has been in Southern California for the past year, teaching at nearby Pomona College. The LA Times has an interview with him today.

Apparently his current project is nonfiction, a book about the “founder of set theory.” I can’t tell who this is supposed to refer to (Boole? Cantor?) but it certainly sounds like an interesting departure.
