    Logicomix! What a delightful read this was.
    This here is Bertrand Russell discovering what is known as the Russell’s paradox, which would upset too many logicians, including Hilbert and for some time, Russell himself.

    Logicomix: An Epic Search for Truth ,with a connection in Frankfurt.

    The incident of course refers to the set theory discussions between Bertrand Russell and Georg Cantor ( I think)
    Specifically the Russell’s Paradox.
