LOGICOMIX AN EPIC SEARCH FOR TRUTH FREE PDF

Reception[ edit ] Jim Holt reviewed the book for the New York Times and says the story "is presented with real graphic verve. Uncle Petros was a bestseller and the much more ambitious Logicomix deserves to be one too. According to Paolo Mancosu , the authors "admittedly take liberties with the real course of events", for example with reference to the alleged meetings Russell would have had with Frege and Cantor. Although "such departures from reality can be fruitful for narrative purposes", according to Mancosu, in some cases they are objectionable, as the portrayal of Frege as a "rabid paranoid antisemite", and the "constant refrain of the alleged causal link between logic and madness". From "the conceptual point of view, some of the major ideas about the foundation of mathematics are conveyed with reasonable accuracy", although sometimes errors, mistakes and inaccuracies occur. The authors have tackled an extremely complicated subject with thought provoking ideas in an aesthetically pleasing and entertaining fashion.

Description This exceptional graphic novel recounts the spiritual odyssey of philosopher Bertrand Russell. But his most ambitious goal-to establish unshakable logical foundations of mathematics-continues to loom before him. Through love and hate, peace and war, Russell persists in the dogged mission that threatens to claim both his career and his personal happiness, finally driving him to the brink of insanity.

This story is at the same time a historical novel and an accessible explication of some of the biggest ideas of mathematics and modern philosophy. With rich characterizations and expressive, atmospheric artwork, the book spins the pursuit of these ideas into a highly satisfying tale. At its heart, Logicomix is a story about the conflict between an ideal rationality and the unchanging, flawed fabric of reality.
