Jon Pérez Laraudogoitia. BSc Physics (Autonomous University Madrid), PhD Philosophy (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU). Since 1983, I hold a Tenured Professorship at University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU. My main research focuses on the role of infinity within the different theories of physics and in  metaphysics more generally. I am especially interested in the conceptual difficulties associated to the actual notion of infinity (e.g. supertaks).
