2. This is due, in part, to the fact that the original discoverer has proposed alternative dates. Cf, Russell 1944a, 13; 1959a, 58; and, 1967a, 147. 3. Cf. van Heijenoort 1967a, 46; Coffa 1979a, 32 & 37 and Garciadiego 1983a, 151-167. 4. See: Eves 1983a, 475. - Some historians propose that the set-theoretic inconsistencies originated from criticism of Cantor's theory.! When one considers the nature of Cantor's departure from traditional mathematics, it is not surprising that there was intense opposition.

As I have mentioned earlier, there have been points of conflict among historians researching this area. Some do not agree with others on specific dates, 2 others disagree on immediate causes. 3 Nevertheless, the basic generalities and consequences of the account remain unchanged, despite the conflicting interpretations. That is, they all conclude that a critical attitude towards Cantor's ideas resulted in the discovery of the set-theoretic 'paradoxes'; in turn, these arguments revealed the need for a reexamination of the foundations of mathematics.

99. 1 The preceding sequence represents the cardinal numbers of fmite sets. Each of the sets is built upon the previous one and all of them have been constructed by the addition of the unity. Cantor has shown that all these numbers represent cardinal numbers of finite sets. But how does one get a transfinite cardinal number? One has to conceive of an infinite set in order to obtain its transfinite cardinal number. Are there any examples of infinite sets in nature? To the best of our knowledge there are none.
