ZENONISM (_uncountable_) * The philosophy of Zeno of Citium; stoicism. * A philosophical framework in which a finite continuum is regarded as an infinite number of discrete elements. * 1995, Eugene Asarin et al, "Symbolic controller synthesis for discrete and timed systems", _Lecture Notes in Computer Science_, volume 999, page 1-20: While synthesizing a controller for timed automata one should be careful not letting any of the players win by "ZENONISM", that is, by preventing the time from progressing as does the Tortoise in its race against Achilles. * 1998, Paolo Rossi, "I Punti Di Zenone: Una Preistoria Vichiana", _Nuncius_, volume 13, issue 2, page 377: ZENONISM (which regards the continuum as composed of points) was defended on various occasions in the Jesuit context, and was also repressed and condemned a number of times. * 2000, Keith Ansell Pearson, "Nietzsche’s Brave New World of Force", _Kairos: A Journal of Philosophy_, volume 9: […] Nietzsche's thinking on time was mediated by Boscovich, which in turn was an attempt to take further and refine the insights of Leibniz and Newton and, perhaps most significant of all, to go beyond various kinds of ZENONISM […]
