And can link it to Dr. Kurt Godel’s work. When this came up, Russell after finding the hole in the previous set theory, claimed to fix it using his method of ‘types’. But then Gödel, in one of the most ingenious moves in the history of math, converted the paradox into a mathematical formula and proved that any statement requires an external observer and ended up proving russell’s theory wrong. His landmark discovery, as powerful as anything Einstein developed, was a devastating blow to the positivism of his
In 1964, two motion pictures released that are founded along the aforementioned subject matter, Sydney Lumet’s “Fail Safe” and Stanley Kubrick “Dr. Strangelove”. Although, aesthetically completely different from one another (Fail Safe is a serious suspense drama while Dr. Strangelove is a satirical comedy) both movies are regarded to be a masterpiece. However, Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove is far more relevant in current times than Lumet’s Fail Safe. As the latter motion picture blame the nuclear holocaust on malfunctioning of a machine, the former place the blame squarely where it belong—on
While the loneliness of nihilism has always been possible, it lacks dramatic potential. To find something is a very different story. Since its inception, science fiction has become the popular medium for portraying that something, the presence in the universe that challenges or confirms the anthropocentric presumptions of the great monotheistic civilizations of Western society.
