Apostolos Doxiadis

Apostolos Doxiadis is a world-famous writer, scholar and thinker. He grew up in Athens, studied mathematics at Columbia and at the École pratique des hautes études in Paris. His first publications earned him a loyal following at home, but it was his novel Uncle Petros and Goldbach’s Conjecture (2000), translated into many languages, which received international acclaim and made him into a much-loved European author. His graphic novel Logicomix (2009), about the historical quest for the foundations of mathematics, became a worldwide bestseller. Additionally, Doxiadis focuses on the relationship between mathematics and narrative techniques; in 2013, he co-edited with Barry Mazur Circles Disturbed. The Interplay of Mathematics and Narrative on this topic.
