Friends of Rogers Park Great Books Discussion: The Art of Logic in An Illogical World

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Description

Join the Friends of Rogers Park Library Great Books Discussion of Eugenia Cheng’s The Art of Logic in An Illogical World.

Eugenia Cheng throws a lifeline to readers drowning in the illogic of contemporary life. Cheng is a mathematician, so she knows how to make an airtight argument. But even for her, logic sometimes falls prey to emotion, which is why she still fears flying and eats more cookies than she should. If a mathematician can't be logical, what are we to do? In this book, Cheng reveals the inner workings and limitations of logic, and explains why alogic - for example, emotion - is vital to how we think and communicate.

The Great Books Discussion is sponsored by the Friends of Rogers Park Library.
