Kurt Friedrich Gödel was an Austrian-American logician, mathematician, and philosopher, born in the Austro-Hungarian city of Brno. He was a bright and inquisitive child, who had interest in various subjects. Although he entered the University of Vienna with physics, he continued attending mathematics and philosophy classes and subsequently took up mathematics as his main subject. Soon after earning his doctorate degree at the age of twenty-five, he published two incompleteness theorems. Thereafter, he began working at the University of Vienna as Privatdozent. Concurrently, he also became a visiting professor at the Institute of Advanced Study at Princeton, USA. When Germany annexed Austria, he moved to the USA, where he spent his entire career at IAS, Princeton. Although he was basically a mathematician, later his interest shifted towards philosophy and he continued working on these two subjects. Unfortunately, towards the end of life, he developed Persecutory delusions and fearing being poisoned, he starved himself to death.
