>the alternate universe where DFW became a mathematician or a logician and never wrote fiction
>>
he would still have no discernible talent

What a wonderful world. We could have a /lit/ where people didn't just parrot the same shit all the time.
>>
DFW studied in the humanities, why are you bringing up math? Is it the figuratively autistic writing style?
If it's because of his essay or the passages about statistics in his novels, anyone who has more than passing knowledge of these fields knows that he just dabbled and gave no signs of having any particular talent for them.

He wrote his thesis on modal logic.
>>
>>7584376
Do your research faggot.

More accurately, he would have become a philosopher, not a mathematician.
