A Brilliant Madness (John Nash)

Mathematical genius and Nobel Prize winner John Nash is usually represented as schizophrenic, but there are also more and more sources stating that he also had Asperger’s, including an excellent paper by renowned Prof. Michael Fitzgerald at academia.edu: https://www.academia.edu/33099050/Did_the_Nobel_Prize_Winner_John_Nash_have_Asperger_s_syndrome_and_Schizophrenia

Everybody knows and loves the movie “A Beautiful Mind” about him, but we would also like to call your attention on a video on YouTube, which is also quite good. Warning: Some scenes in the mental hospital where patients were treated with insulin might be disturbing to some viewers.
