Abstract

In this work an interesting overview concerning the human attempts in the description of the concept of infi nite is presented. This peculiar concept represents a cardinal point in the history of human culture, because man, with different modalities, has always compared with it. Historically the main followed streams were two: the rational and the irrational approaches. In the fi rst approach we fi nd disciplines such as philosophy, mathematics and physics; the
second is the domain of literature, arts and religion. Some activities for developing ideas about the intuitive concept of the infi nity at the level of compulsory education will be also given.
