Catching up with Zeno...

I just wanted to share another Zeno analysis I came across today, this one from Adolf Grüubaum:

"According to a view that is as widespread as it is erroneous, Zeno's argument is no more than a mathematical anachronism. We are told that if he had only known, as we do today, that the arithmetic some of the suitably converging infinite series of numbers is finite rather than infinite, then he would have recognized that he had merely posed a pseudoproblem" (Zeno's Paradoxes, editor Wesley C. Salmon, p. 172, emphasis mine).
