This book chronicles the fascinating lives of seven remarkable people, their ideas and their discoveries. These are the people who investigated the why and how of logical reasoning. The book chronicles the exhilaration and the pitfalls of trying to come to grips with the infinite. Finally, it covers Alan Turing’s radically new understanding of the nature of algorithmic processes and their the potential, which led to the development of a machine that could be programmed to carry out any process – the precursor of the modern computer.
