Description

This biography, by his sister, of the logician and Resistance hero, Jean Cavailles, not only traces the itinerary of an exceptional destiny, it also restores the intellectual climate of a segment of French thought in the 1930s. The biography is based on Cavailles' philosophical, religious and political concerns. In particular, the use made by Gabrielle Ferrieres of her brother's letters demonstrates the essential unity of Cavailles' thought, the man of action married to the philosopher of mathematics, the intellectual recluse of the Ecole Normale Superieure allied to the dynamic leader of one of France's most famous Resistance networks.
