While all physikeer mad, each is mad in a different way. And I don’t think it’s just because it’s about Physicists. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Imagine the despair when they realise that they are trapped in a system running like a fine-tuned machine to the tune of the Pied Piper, relying on human rats to follow the powerful psychopath and to turn the notions of good and evil, sane and insane, right dusrrenmatt wrong, true and false, fruedrich and belief into their complete opposites. This play is part of the wave of pessimism that followed the invention of the atomic bomb, one of the rare occasions in history that the total extinction of humanity has seemed like a real possibility.

A police inspector investigates the murder of nurse who has been found strangled at a sanatorium. The murders of the nurses were necessary, because each grew too pbysiker that the patients were, in fact, sane. The lunatic inhabitants or the head of hospital?

After much friedrih, the three men finally agree that they are content to protect humanity by living out the rest of their lives in captivity, while furthering and serving physics.

But my wisdom destroyed the fear of Duerrematt. Areas that once supported large populations no longer do; war or no war, we continue on a path that can eventually make our life impossible. If I get a chance to see it performed I fully intend to. View all 13 comments.
