Dear colleagues,

since the subject of infinity received from you some attention, I would like
to add two other references:

Alexandre Koyré in 'Etudes d'Histoire de La Pensee Philosophique' presents
to my knowledge (even known that there exists a book entirely devoted to the
subject) the best reflection on Zenon paradoxes and infinity.

Aristotle's Physics, edited by Lindsay Judson, includes a chapter written by
William Charlton on Aristotle's Potential Infinites.

Best regards,

J. Felix

P.S.: I am very interested in references provided by Bill Tait.
