I saw the ramifications immediately, for it was quite clear that it put him in danger of a stroke. ” I asked. “I cannot think when I take them”, he said.

After some time I discreetly asked Professor Mostowski why he let Y go. “He did not prove theorems” was the answer. Metamathematics of set theory was, doubtless, Professor Mostowski’s greatest love. He returned to it throughout his career. D. and Habilitationsschrift) were devoted to it; he studied the issues related to consistency and independence (in effect the same thing) of various set-theoretic sentences throughout his life.
