'What the Tortoise Said to Achilles'

Satam Choudhury said...

Achilles and the tortoise problem?? Zeno's paradox which states that it's impossible for a racer to overtake his rival if the latter has started earlier. Laid the foundation of infinity and one of the first problems dealt by Newtonian Calculus.

Achilles giving up being a logician and becoming a journalist upon being outwitted by the Tortoise. From Lewis Carroll's dialogues.
