Ep. 97 – Math Heresy: Ultrafinitism | Dr. Doron Zeilberger

Dr. Doron Zeilberger is the Distinguished Professor of Mathematics at Rutgers University. He’s also a math heretic who thoroughly rejects the orthodox conceptions of infinity in modern mathematics. So we got along quite well.

We had a fantastic conversation covering a wide range of topics, including set theory, calculus and limits, pi, irrational numbers like the square root of two, real analysis, and Godel’s Incompleteness Theorems.

If you’re interested in the philosophy of mathematics, this is a must-listen.
