  • Math, Philosophy, Comics and Bertrand Russell’s Search for Truth
    s life Raised by his paternal grandparents young Russell was never told the whereabouts of his parents Driven by a desire for knowledge of his own history he attempted to force the world to yield to his yearnings for truth clarity and resolve An insightful and complexly layered narrative Logicomix reveals both Russell s inner struggle and the quest for the foundations of logic Narration by an older wiser Russell as well as asides from the author himself make sense of the story s heady and powerful ideas At its heart Logicomix is a story about the conflict between pure reason and the persistent flaws of reality a narrative populated by great and august thinkers young lovers ghosts and insanity More info here Apostolos and Alecos will be honored guests at the 6th Komikazen International reality comic festival which runs from the 8th to the 10th of October in Ravenna Italy Alecos s original artwork from Logicomix from thumbnails to the final penciling will be on display

graphique tout opposé David Vandermeulen nous avait donné une biographie de savant doublée d un superbe exercice graphique dans Fritz Haber Ici il faut avouons le passer par dessus un dessin un tantinet vieillot pour entrer dans le projet à vrai dire complètement fou des deux scénaristes transformer en roman graphique le destin de Bertrand Russell ce logicien et mathématicien anglais aussi connu pour ses prises de position politiques progressistes pacifistes et pour commencer non conformistes que pour sa contribution au débat entre logiciens autour de la théorie des ensembles le paradoxe de Russell entre autres On voit l ampleur de la gageure rendre compte en fiction et qui plus est en fiction dessinée de l aventure des idées Les auteurs aggravent leur cas en entrecroisant au moins trois temps celui d une conférence donnée par Russell en 1939 un vaste retour en arrière sur l ensemble de sa vie le tout truffé de percées en avant sur les auteurs du roman confrontés sans cesse à des problèmes de lisibilité et c est bien le moins de logique Bref une histoire à suspense dont les héros s appellent Cantor Gödel ou Wittgenstein et qu on suit en effet avec passion Une oeuvre grecque cette dimension est importante et soulignée c est à dire universelle All comic books are about a hero s journey Each hero must travel the path destined for him be it Superman Batman Maus or as is the case with Logicomix Bertrand Russell Sure Russell was a mathematician logician philosopher pacifist and historian whose theories are considered prescient but to many other left hemisphere intellectuals Russell was very simple a hero with a quest to save the world from the devils contradiction and paradox From Avain Publishing Attend LOGICOMIX related events at the Helsinki
