This volume is a translation of the book "Godel", written in Japanese by Gaisi Takeuti, a distinguished proof theorist. The core of the text is a memoir of K. Godel, Takeuti's personal recollections, and his interpretation of Godel's comprises attitudes towards mathematical logic. It also contains Takeuti's recollection of association with some other famous logicians. The author adheres to his own experiences and interpretations. There is also an article on Hilbert's second problem as well as on the author's fundamental conjecture about second order logic.
