I-think

I Think, Therefore I Laugh [Paperback]
by John Allen Paulos

Book Description
Publication Date: March 15, 2000 | ISBN-10: 0231119151 | ISBN-13: 978-0231119153 | Edition: Revised

The preeminent explicator of mathematical logic to non-mathematicians, John Allen Paulos is familiar to general readers not only from his bestselling books but also from his media appearances, including The David Letterman Show and National Public Radio’s “Talk of the Nation” and “Science Friday,” as well as articles in Newsweek, Nature, Discover, Business Week, the New York Times Book Review, The Nation, New York Review of Books, and The London Review of Books.

Paulos originally wrote this charming little book on analytic logic, its mathematics, and its puzzles in 1985. And as in his later books, he uses jokes, stories, parables, and anecdotes to elucidate difficult concepts, in this case, some of the fundamental problems in modern philosophy.

Editorial Reviews
Review
If, like me, you find fun in logical conundrums and absurdities, you will find plenty [here]. On the other hand, if you’re of the type that finds people like Paulos and me tedious, you should look into his book anyway, just to see what you’ve been missing. — Ted Cohen, author of Jokes: Philosophical Thoughts on Joking Matters
Paulos is brilliant at capturing difficult ideas in a memorable joke. I’ve never laughed so much while thinking so hard. — Brian Butterworth, author of What Counts: How Every Brain is Hardwired for Math
