Mathematics and God's Point of View

Zbigniew Król

Abstract

In this paper the final stages of the historical proces of the emergence of actual infinity in mathematics are considered. The application of God's point of view - i.e. the possibility to create mathematics from a divine perspective, i.e. from the point of view of an eternal, timeles, omniscience and unlimited subject of cognition - is one of the main factors in this proces. Nocole Oresme is the first man who systematically used actual infinity in mathematical reasoning, constructions and proofs in geometry
