About Kurt Gödel
Kurt Gödel left a mark as one of the world’s most notable logicians in history. He was also an influential figure in the 20th century’s scientific and philosophical thinking. At just 25 years old, he published his incompleteness theorem, which when he built on later was the gateway for the assumption of the axiom of choice in proofs by mathematicians. He also defined the relationships between modal logic, classical logic and intuitionistic logic.
He was the son of a textile factory manager, Rudolf Gödel and his wife, Marianne. He married a divorced dancer named Adele Nimbursky in 1938. He held citizenship of Czechoslovakia (revoked), Austria and the United States.
He was a recipient of the first Albert Einstein Award along with Julian Schwinger. In 1974, he was decorated with the National Medal of Science.
