The Gossiping Numbers

Raad Chalabi, PhD


In his eleventh book, in the series of books dealing with human nature, entitled The Gossiping Numbers, author Raad Chalabi through forty six stand-alone fictional dialogues, addresses the issue of the vulnerability of pure logic to the emotional needs of humans.

As with all his earlier multi-scene dialogue based books the author does not attempt to provide answers but only documents images of the ongoing intellectual battle between peddlers of certainty and managers of chaos

The theme behind The Gossiping numbers is that logic is an irreplaceable tool that guides us onto the path that allows us to reach a desired destination. The problem, as the author sees it, is that a logically-defined path usually gets blocked by our emotional needs. Moreover our initially desired destination rarely continues to be so as life presents alternative options.
