  • Math, Philosophy, Comics and Bertrand Russell’s Search for Truth
    to great acclaim in Greece Indeed Bloomsbury associate editor Benjamin Adams the editor overseeing the book publication said it was both a Greek bestseller in 2008 as well as the first graphic novel published in Greece We re hugely ambitious about this book said Adams Bloomsbury has done only a few comics so this is new territory But we see it as book that goes beyond the comics audience to a general audience of readers Because of its dual release the book will have a significant first printing although Adams said the exact size of the printing has not been determined as yet Logicomix is a full color 336 page book 22 95 that also features a glossary of technical terms and prose annotations on all of the historical figures in the book There s a 10 city book tour that will focus on Universities in Boston Philadelphia Chicago Seattle and other towns and there s a website logicomix com that features media and background information on the writers the remarkable artist team of Papadatos and Di Donna as well as behind the scenes video on the making of the book Adams said Bloomsbury plans to make its first forays into the sometimes arcane world of comics conventions to promote the book and foreign rights have been sold to 9 countries among them France China Israel Holland and Turkey While the life of Bertrand Russell is the core narrative of Logicomix the book s focus is really on Russell s life work a passionate and ultimately futile attempt to establish a foundation for modern mathematics on clear and concretely stated logic Beginning in the early part of the 20 th century Russell and other prominent mathematicians sought to establish a set of rigorously conceived logical proofs that would eliminate the paradox and circular logic typical of mathematics of the era Logicomix is the story of that passionate search for philosophical truth and along the way documents both the efforts of Russell in particular the writing of his seminal book Principia Mathematica coauthored with Alfred North Whitehead and a long list of prominent turn of the century intellectuals who struggled with these questions in the pursuit of an unattainable intellectual dead certainty In fact Logicomix can be seen as a book about Russell s failure to achieve his goals even though his work laid the groundwork for mathematics and logic as we know them today While the book is the story of extremely smart men wrestling intellectually with profound abstractions Doxiadis Papadimitriou and the artists have managed to produce an exuberant historical yarn filled with antic portrayals of an impressive list historical figures men who either influenced Russell s thinking or argued passionately with him over their own conclusions and differences Indeed Logicomix ruminates on such figures as the ancient Greek playwright Aeschylus and offers lively portrayals of the likes of such early 20th century intellectual figures as David Hilbert Kurt Godel Alfred North Whitehead and Ludwig Wittgenstein But besides all

  • A Visual Phenomenon
    in a bad mood and I look around I see very few reasons for hope But the internet is one of the things that always gives me hope In person he explains In a very deep way the internet does not belong to anybody and cannot be controlled There is a phrase out there quoted many times that the internet wants to be free This means free of government intervention free of corporate control and free of charge Nothing is absolute but there is so much truth in this Of course there are efforts to control it tax it suppress it whatever both by the undemocratic governments in Saudi Arabia and China and frankly by the West the USA the EU They are also protagonists in this Of epic proportions LOGICOMIX An Epic Search for Truth follows the tortuous and Sisyphean quest of British philosopher logician and pacifist Bertrand Russell 1872 1970 for the foundations of mathematics and his search for logic as a shield from the insanity that consumed other members of his family but also academic colleagues A deeply personal account which looks at intimate aspects of Russell s biography the narrative also encompasses his interactions with the legendary thinkers and mathematicians of his era including Gottlob Frege David Hilbert and Kurt Goedel and his passionate student Ludwig Wittgenstein Numerous historical references such as the rise of Nazism and classical tragedies serve as a backdrop to the novel s more abstract and philosophical subject matter The Greek connection WHILE the central theme of Logicomix is the tale of two friends trying to understand the epic journey of mathematical logic undertaken by in the main British German and Austrian scholars the nationalities of the co authors friends Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos Papadimitriou has left an unmistakable Greek imprint throughout The novel was conceived eight and a half years ago in Athens when the two authors met for the first time over lunch Finding that they were both intrigued by the story Doxiadis later suggested producing a book on it some months later Apostolos had this idea that this could be best done as a graphic novel which took me by complete surprise recalls Papadimitriou adding When I first heard it I laughed and when I realised he was serious I cried Golden opportunity While their common Greek background brought the two together Papadimitriou says that both immediately saw an opportunity in that This is a story about one of the epics of the human intellect We saw it as an irresistible idea to explain the story with the backdrop of Athens where other epics unfolded he says While Papadimitriou says the book could have been written just as well by non Greeks he and Doxiadis seem to agree that the novel s Greek character adds an important element I think the fact that the whole adventure of logic making a science out of it and trying to tame chaos and madness through reasons is in a sense a very
