Example text

The Two Kings” 263-64) What we’ve just witnessed is a typical mathematical operation: the absolute abstraction of the labyrinth concept and the demonstration that a labyrinth can also be a desert. This process of abstraction is one of the recurrent mathematical procedures we see in Borges’ work. ” It’s exactly the same sort of process: A king is a plenitude, an ascetic is nothing or wants to be nothing, and so people enjoy imagining a dialogue between these two archetypes. Here are a few examples, from Eastern and Western sources.

The last. It would appear from this message that the series of crimes ends here: three crimes, the third day. ’” he asks (81). Borges, as we can see, plays fair till the end: the story is a sham, and the detective of reality discovers this. But the reader, already trapped in the fictional logic, knows that something else is going to happen. In effect, the second logic, the fictional one, has already contaminated the tale. And what does the reader foresee? As in any classic detective story, the reader anticipates that Lönnrot will be the one to provide the definitive explanation and that the “realistic” detective will be more inept.

And again, in this discussion of “divine, winged” intuition versus the prosaic, tortoise pace of logic, I would like to contradict a myth about mathematics: the process Borges describes is exactly the same as what happens in mathematical creation. Let’s consider the mathematician who has to prove a theorem for the first time, not someone who follows the demonstration of an already-proved theorem line by line, a process that would be akin to what a reader does with an alreadycompleted work. Our mathematician sets out to prove a result without even knowing if such a proof really exists.
