An infinite regress is an infinite series of occurrences or concepts. It occurs in some philosophical concepts and is sometimes considered an unwanted or absurd implication. There is no a-priori reason why an infinite regress cannot occur.
- Causal infinite regress is featured in the uncaused cause and cosmological argument. It is a relevant in the discussion of Kalam.
- Logical infinite regress is a feature of the Münchhausen trilemma and its related trilemmas.
Many arguments rely on the alleged fact that infinite regress does not occur.
