Set theory was created by Georg Cantor in the 1870s, and quickly gave rise to an axiom system, known as ZFC, from which all of known mathematics can be derived. We will survey the remarkable achievements of the next 100 years, with emphasis on the work of Ernst Zermelo in the 1900s, Kurt Gödel in the 1930s, and Paul Cohen in the 1960s.
