More on LOGICOMIX, from Richard Zach
Richard Zach of LogBlog also wrote a review of Logicomix last week, and today followed up specifically addressing the novel's theme of Logic and Madness. This was something I left out of my review, but like Zach, I was similarly turned off by the novel's insinuations of a positive correlation. Both posts by Zach point out several historical inaccuracies in Logicomix, where the novel overstates the "madness" of various logicians—important to keep in mind when reading Logicomix (which you should, nonetheless...).
