This exceptional graphic novel recounts the spiritual odyssey of philosopher Bertrand Russell. In his agonized search for absolute truth, Russell crosses paths with legendary thinkers while his most ambitious goal, to establish unshakable logical foundations of mathematics, continues to loom before him. Russell persists in the quest that threatens to claim both his career and his personal happiness, finally driving him to the brink of insanity. Logicomix is a story about the conflict between an ideal rationality and the unchanging, flawed fabric of reality. Written by Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos Papadimitriou, with art by Alecos Papadatos and Annie Di Donna.
