The Science Explained. The life story of John Nash, the Nobel laureate in mathematics, is indeed the stuff of drama, and it is well documented in the biography, A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar. A precocious genius, Mr. Nash was producing innovative mathematical theorems and had achieved prestigious academic honors in his twenties.   On one level, Nash’s contribution to game theory was highly mathematical, and, ultimately, somewhat trivial. That is how his intellectual rival at Princeton, John von Neumann, reputedly.

A Beautiful Mind was criticized by some viewers for glossing over some of the darker elements of Nash’s life story, including the facts that Nash fathered a child with a different woman before marrying Alicia and that he was arrested in for indecent exposure. The mathematician’s symptoms in fact did not begin until , after he had written his dissertation.   Capturing the mood of the English landscape: the genius of John Nash Andrew Lambert renews our interest in the highly distinctive artist of the countryside, hitherto overshadowed by .

The unique story of John Forbes Nash Jr. is one of genius, insanity and recovery. The subject of the Oscar-winning film of the same name, A Beautiful Mind () chronicles the remarkable life of a mathematical genius who, at the age of 30, was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and had his world flipped upside down. Three decades later, after a miraculous recovery, he was awarded a Nobel. Genre/Form: Biography Biographies: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Rothenstein, John, John Nash.
