  • A Good Look at Logic
    personal life was just as eventful Born into a prominent aristocratic family and orphaned at the age of three he was raised by his strict Victorian grandparents married four times and jailed in the First World War for his pacifist principles We see him as a lonely child finding comfort in the certainties of Euclid as a young man courting his first wife with the tales of Lewis Carroll and as a distinguished philosopher meeting some of the greatest minds of the 20th century This dramatic tale unfolds in classic comic book style punctuated by thought bubbles fantasy sequences and action noises Boom Crack Our hero is a lone ranger battling against impossible odds to reach his goal of absolute truth often despairing but never giving up Appropriately the book has a few philosophical tricks of its own It opens with its authors researchers and artists in cartoon form discussing the project with one another as they draw up storyboards in their studio They reappear throughout the book to comment on its progress This cartoon within a cartoon is a neat illustration of Russell s famous paradox of self reference and provides a running commentary on the story Russell is torn between two poles striving for reason sanity and peace against chaos madness and war The authors have their own dilemma to contend with we see them arguing over whether this is a human story about a man and his passions or about the developing science of logic Along the way we visit 1940s New York sunny present day Athens turn of the century Paris and the quads of Cambridge and meet Frege G E Moore Gödel and Wittgenstein Brilliantly sketched these intellectual giants endlessly debate and even brawl over the finer points of logic In the cartoon format their
