An investigation of the nature and philosophical uses of number.

The first volume of Collapse investigates the nature and philosophical uses of number. The volume includes an interview with Alain Badiou on the relation between philosophy, mathematics, and science, an in-depth interview with mathematician Matthew Watkins on the strange connections between physics and the distribution of prime numbers, and contributions that demonstrate the many ways in which number intersects with philosophical thought―from the mathematics of intensity to terrorism, from occultism to information theory, and graphical works of multiplicity.
