Mathematician, Logician. Born in Brno, Moravia (now part of the Czech Republic), he studied in Vienna. He is best known for his two incompleteness theorems, published in 1931, which had an enormous impact on mathematical thought. At the beginning of World War II he moved to the United States and became a US citizen in 1948. As a professor at Princeton he was friends with Albert Einstein. Godel had an obsessive fear of being poisoned and he died of self-inflicted malnutrition. The international Kurt Gödel Society was founded in his honor in 1987.
