Movie ID: VT3056
Movie Number: 3056
Description: In this lively and engaging videotaped 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. This meticulously researched lecture covers the mathematical, technological, philosophical, theological, and even psychological aspects of Cantor's struggle. Dauben describes Cantor's mental illness, the personal and mathematical attacks he endured, and his single-minded approach to his work. 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.

She also jumped at the challenge of LSSU's Honors program, which requires her to complete 21 Honors credits, including 10 credits for an Honors seminar/thesis project.
