             Does mathematics make people insane?
            The greatest mathematicians are often quite eccentric. There are several cases in which only pure madness can explain their behavior.

The greatest mathematicians are often quite eccentric. There are several cases in which only pure madness can explain their behavior. What should we think of Alexandr Grothendiek, one of the greatest              mathematicians of the twentieth century, who one day left his promising career in Paris to go hide away in a     village in Ariège, where he lived out the rest of his days without running water or electricity, refusing to see anyone. How do we understand Paul Erdos, the          wandering Hungarian who spent his life traveling with just a small bag, staying at the homes of various           colleagues with whom he published articles, making him the most prolific mathematicians in history? The most revealing case is that of Georg Cantor, who        created set theory, and who, to his despair, couldn’t keep himself from his obsession with the notion of      infinity. He died in a psychiatric hospital for identifying the absolute infinite with God. To paraphrase Diderot: Are they crazy? Are they geniuses?
