Overview. It is widely accepted that the solutions to the dilemma of explaining physical movement (commonly known as Zeno's Paradoxes), lies in assuming that all physical movement is comprised of a continuous, and contiguous series of 'infinitesimal' little movements, which together provide "perfectly continuous" and seamless movement.

Includes an updated bibliography/5(13). Zeno of Elea, an ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher, is famed for his paradoxes of motion. One involves shooting an arrow at a target, which he argues first must move half-way to its target, then half-way again from the midpoint, then half-way again, never quite reaching the target; in fact, in order to get to the first half-way point, the arrow must go half-way to it, and to get to.

Zeno's paradoxes are a famous set of thought-provoking stories or puzzles created by Zeno of Elea in the mid-5th century BC. Philosophers, physicists, and mathematicians have argued for 25 centuries over how to answer the questions raised by Zeno's Paradoxes.

In brief: According to the root assumptions of science — that for each physical effect there is a physical cause — physical movement is theoretically impossible, yet we routinely move our bodies in everyday life.

The root assumptions cannot explain, or be precisely correlated with physical phenomena. In detail: Correct solutions to Zeno's Paradoxes require that they be fully.

set theory) or equations. They are deep rooted in profound concepts, whose appropriate analysis and synthesis shall resolve the paradoxes. Among his famous 60 paradoxes, only one of the most profound puzzle of mystery survive to our time, i.e., the flying arrow paradox, a) thanks to Aristotle who preserved them in his book of Physics.

Zeno raised the question about the continuation of space and time that even today’s quantum physicists are struggling. The importance of Zeno's paradox is purposely disclosing the fatal fundamental defects of the absence of the confusion of “potential infinite--actual infinite” in present classical infinite related science and mathematics.
