What is Zeno’s Dichotomy Paradox?

This What is Zeno’s Dichotomy Paradox? video also includes:

Logic, paradox, infinity and finite...it all used to be Greek to me! And these concepts in modern day philosophy and advanced mathematics truly are Greek in origin, with particular regard to ancient Greek philosopher Zeno of Elea. Learn about the complexities of a paradox and discover one particularly logical, yet contradictory, argument, which led mathematicians today to prove that while traveling from any location to another should take an infinite amount of time, it is indeed a finite sum.
