Marxism and Mathematics

It is worth checking out a little book by Rudy Rucker
called 'Infinity and the Mind'. There was a question
about 0/0 in relation to differentials.
Rucker's book contains a section and reference to the
work by Abraham Robinson on the new demonstration of
the real existence of differentials. The use of
limiting concepts from the nineteenth century
attempted to keep the subject out of paradox troubles,
but now we can see that there really is a number
smaller than any rational number 1/n as n increases,
yet greater than zero.
