Qué interesante parece este cómic, Logicomix, 350 paginas sobre la vida de Bertrand Russell y su búsqueda de la verdad lógica. Además, uno de los autores es Apostolos Doxiadis, que ya nos dio El tío Petros y la conjetura de Goldbach.

On September 4, 1939, just after Great-Britain had declared war with Germany, philosopher and mathematician Bertrand Russell spoke to a very sceptical American audience about the “Role of logic in human affairs”. This anecdote is the starting point for Logicomix, a graphic novel about the origins of Russell’s lifelong search to find the undeniable logical foundations of mathematics.

Logicomix is the brainchild of two Greek writers (the book was originally an unlikely bestseller in Greece, staying on the charts for several months), Apostolos Doxiadis, a celebrated writer and director who previously created a shadow-puppet musical about Jackson Pollock, and Christos H. Papadimitriou, a professor in computer sciences at Berkeley, who can count Bill Gates amongst his alumni.
