There is a concept which corrupts and upsets all others.
J.L. Borges, writing about infinity

To study infinity is to study things which have no limit, no ends, or no bounds. Consequently, it touches the areas of study of philosophers, scientists and mathematicians in a remarkable number of ways, and often causing interesting difficulties in doing so, some of which, such as Zeno’s paradoxes of Hilbert’s hotel, have achieved great popularity. Infinity is philosophically relevant in Logic and Mathematics, with issues such as the study of set theory, the topic of infinitesimals, and the problems of infinity in probabilistic mathematics. In Metaphysics and the Philosophy of Physics, the problems of both of infinite extension and infinite divisibility of space and of time have troubled thinkers for millennia. In the Philosophy of Religion, the infinity of God is a vast and ancient area of investigation. Indeed, the history of the philosophy of infinity, engaging with the long and complex evolution of this topic is itself an important area of research.

Hence, after the success of the 2022 KCL Graduate Conference on Vagueness and Indeterminacy, we are glad to present the 2023 KCL Graduate Conference: Perspectives on Infinity, which will take place at King’s College London on the 12th and 13th May 2023. With this conference, we plan to bring together graduate logicians, mathematicians, philosophers and theologians alike, to exchange ideas about infinity in its many forms and shapes. Professor Adrian W. Moore (University of Oxford) and Professor Øystein Linnebo (University of Oslo) will be our invited keynote speakers.

The call for abstracts is now closed. If you wish to register for the conference, please check the relevant information in our section on Practical Information.
