Alexander Ilichevsky
Imagining the World


The leitmotif of the book of essays by Alexander Ilichevsky is imagination. It whimsically links mathematical axioms and modernist literature, bioinformatics and landscape parks, string theory and Second Temple Judaism, solid body physics and the language of angels. For about twenty millennia, the world has been developing through imagination — the only lever that can transform it; and this lever does not even need a fulcrum. Alexander Ilichevsky (b. 1970) - Russian novelist and poet, author of the novels "Matisse", "The Persian", "The Mathematician", "Newton's Drawing"; winner of several literary awards, including "Russian Booker" (2007) and "Big Book" (2010).
