Michael Huemer's new book Approaching Infinity squarely takes on problems related to understanding the infinite. ... Huemer's book is indeed a very good contribution to the study of the infinite. ...

Approaching Infinity should be required reading for anyone with an interest in this fascinating topic. (Biagio Gerard Tassone, dialectica, Vol. 71 (2), June, 2017) Approaching Infinity is entertaining and competently written. It is recommended to anybody who finds the puzzles of the infinite intrinsically interesting, but also to those who think that the paradoxes of the infinite were totally tamed by Aristotle or contemporary mathematics. (Christopher M.P. Tomaszewski, The Review of Metaphysics, Vol. 71 (3), 2017)


Author Information

Michael Huemer received a B.A. from UC Berkeley and a Ph.D. from Rutgers University. He is presently a full professor at the University of Colorado, where he has taught since 1998. He has published three single-author scholarly books, one edited anthology, and more than fifty academic articles in epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, and metaphysics. His articles have appeared in such journals as the Philosophical Review, Mind, the Journal of Philosophy, Ethics, and others. Michael's first book, Skepticism and the Veil of Perception, significantly advanced the theory of Phenomenal Conservatism in epistemology, which is now considered one of the leading theories of justified belief and is the focus of the recent anthology, Seemings and Justification (Oxford, 2013). His second book, Ethical Intuitionism, is one of the leading contemporary defenses of ethical intuitionism and of moral realism more generally. It has been assigned as course reading by two colleagues at my own university, in addition to philosophers at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Lafayette College, Huron University College, Syracuse University, and Princeton University. It was the subject of a book symposium in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research. Michael's most recent book, The Problem of Political Authority, was published in 2013.
