Classically or intuitionistically?

The classical truth of Logicomix is suspect, as the authors explain in the 
appendix.  They used artistic license in changing historical facts to suit 
their story.  This is standard practice in historical fiction.

But if your goal is to give your readers some intuition about what the 
fuss was all about, then classical truth is not necessarily so important.
