Why reading a comicbook that hurts your brain is enjoyable
1+1=2 but why?
In a world full of uncertainty, a young man falls in love with the certainty of math… until he finds out some of mathematical foundation rests upon faith. Suddenly the core of his identity is placed under scrutiny as he finds that uncertainty is part of his life and it begins to affect him in ways that lead to the foundation of modern technology. This piece deals with many issues like mental health, fidelity, rationalism and more. Very easy to understand for a relatively complex subject, I recommend this book for anyone interested in a dramatic exploration of reality.
The art style is nothing to put up at the Louvre, but more than adaquately serves to frame a philosophical journey of Bertrand Russell, notable mathematician, logician, philosopher, and winner of a Nobel Peace Prize. Responsible for a famous paradox, an indirect founder of the modern computer and a prominent anti-war activist but never the less “champion[ed] humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought” during the decision of America (or is it Britain?) to join World War I, Russell shows the reader that you can go far when you set your mind to it.
The graphic novel begins with an introduction by the creators in comic panel style, giving a modern connection to the retelling of events of Professor Russell. Using this link, the creators forge an iconic vision of what it means to foster free thought. With patience and respect for this bold intention, this book is for you.
