I'm currently taking a course called 'the scientific revolution' and I have to write a paper (~4500 words) for it. The subject can be pretty broad, it doesn't neccesarily have to do with the scientific revolution, there's some room for improvisation. Now I was thinking, what about a paper that explores the way 'infinity' has been viewed throughout the ages? Is that something I could write 4500 words about and I can find enough documentation for? If so, anyone have any tips for me regarding books/papers or things like that? Also, what would be a good central question? 'How has infinity been viewed through the ages?' will surely not be satisfactory for my teacher.
