Quite annoying he's referred to as the mathematician in a beautiful mind and for schizophrenia rather than his contributions.

Oh they sort of go hand in hand. Schizophrenia in a way defined his brilliance. He battled it and won despite not being able to escape its reality. Admirable alone for his genius but even more so because of his battle for mental freedom.

That's not true for Mathematicians/Economists.

Pratik means that mathematicians and economists will regard John Nash with higher esteem because of his contributions to those fields and not simply for his schizophrenia and appearance in that Russell Crowe film...His "Game Theory" is of course highly applicable and revolutionary to both parties.
