  • A Visual Phenomenon
    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his era including Gottlob Frege David Hilbert and Kurt Goedel and his passionate student Ludwig Wittgenstein Numerous historical references such as the rise of Nazism and classical tragedies serve as a backdrop to the novel s more abstract and philosophical subject matter The Greek connection WHILE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 Greek

  • Wunderkammer Magazine Review
    to answer the question What is logic His mode of inquiry into this question is by way of an investigation of his own past Herein lies the third setting Russell s life I ll speak briefly to the second audience now the graphic novel bibliophiles As I mentioned before I can t feign too great an expertise in this area thus the brevity What is unmistakable however is this the authors use their medium to great advantage They deftly weave together their three pronged attack on logic and Russell s life cleverly mirroring panels between the historical segments and the bulletin boards in their own cartooned offices in Greece Altogether I am convinced that their concept could not function as successfully in a less visual format Beyond this trait any additional critique would be largely worthless e g the drawing was nicely done and I liked the pictures It s now to the third reader that I move the one interested to learn a bit more about mathematics This person really excites me because I rarely find them outside of Reader 1 and this is a sad thing However I will attempt to argue that Logicomix could be even more instrumental than Winnie from the Wonder Years in reversing this trend that is the trend where my wife groans whenever I begin talking about what I do She has yet to read Logicomix But when she or anyone else of this same mindset does I hope that the effect of reading is revelatory I hope that in reading there can be a better appreciation of what mathematicians do or more crucially why To truly understand what this appreciation would mean to me though some background is necessary Six months ago I had occasion to confront a problem in how I view my academic pursuit At issue was how I had always defended my course of study At the heart of my argument although not always cited explicitly was the physicist and mathematician Eugene Wigner s 1960 article titled The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences To summarize the theme of Wigner s paper consider this somewhat more contemporary example Around 1920 the mathematician Johann Radon developed a purely mathematical object the Radon transform Fifty years later it became the chief computational tool used in CT scans Like Wigner such artifacts have always surprised me And I have often asked myself the same question how is it that purely abstract concepts come to have such practical uses Until now though I have tended to use such examples as a poorly constructed defense for my current work Altogether my apology for my studies has been one of See Wigner says that I don t need to have any concern for the practicality of my work Someone will find something useful for it within 50 years While such an argument quickly placates those who wonder why my efforts are fruitful I have recently come to an important conclusion Such a view
