I am giving a talk this afternoon titled “From Logic with Love” as part of a special class organized by U. Iowa English Prof. Judith Pascoe, where professors from different departments give talks from the perspective of their discipline on the topic “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love”. The slides are here. I am also including some links and notes below, for students interested in further reading.
The short story Beginners, by Raymond Carver, can be found here. This is the original version of the story that was published as “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love”.
Ray Monk’s biography of Bertrand Russell, while loathed by admirers of Russell, is extremely interesting and revealing reading.
Constance Reid’s biography of David Hilbert is also very interesting and enjoyable reading. It includes a reprint of much of the text of his famous 1900 Paris lecture on future problems of mathematics.

A Man For Others by Patricia Treece is an excellent read about Maximilian Kolbe. It contains first-hand reports and recollections from many different people who knew the saint.
