Depressing, but interesting. This very fictionalized comparison of the minds of two famous, though mentally unstable and grossly disfunctional, scientists (Mathematical Philosopher Kurt Gödel, and Computer Scientist Alan Turing) does give an enlightening glimpse into the world of the Philosophies of Science and Linguistics, and the Vienna Group in the years preceeding World War II.
