Perpetual Motion by John L. Bell

| /

Perpetual Motion is the story of John Bell's life, from his birth as a "war-baby" in 1945 Britain, to his early years as a mathematics lecturer at the London School of Economics during the 1970s. It is unusual in being both the autobiography of a mathematical logician (now turned philosopher) and of a youth who spent most of his time very much on the move. His father's employment took his family to New York, Rome, The Hague, San Francisco, Bangkok, Tripoli, and Quito. It also includes a description of John's years at British boarding school, Cambridge, and Oxford and an account of his involvement in the turbulent political events of the late 1960s and early 70s.
