Reviews

"This is an extraordinary graphic novel, wildly ambitious in daring to put into words and drawings the life and thought of one of the great philosophers of the last century, Bertrand Russell...A rare intellectual and artistic achievement, which will, I am sure, lead its readers to explore realms of knowledge they thought were forbidden to them." --Howard Zinn

"This magnificent book is about ideas, passions, madness, and the fierce struggle between well-defined principle and the larger good." --Barry Mazur, Gerhard Gade University Professor at Harvard University, and author of Imagining Numbers (Particularly the Square Root of Minus Fifteen)

"Logicomix is witty, engaging, stylish, visually stunning, and full of surprising sound effects, a masterpiece in a genre for which there is as yet no name." --Michael Harris, professor of mathematics at Université Paris 7 and member of the Institut Universitaire de France
