Everyone knows Lotfi Zadeh as the Father of Fuzzy Logic. There have been -- and will be -- many papers on this important topic. What I want to emphasize in this paper is that his ideas go way beyond fuzzy logic:
- he was a pioneer in AI;
- he was a pioneer in statistical analysis; and
- he was a pioneer in foundations of mathematics.
My goal is to explain these ideas to non-fuzzy folks. I also want to emphasize that he was a true Citizen of the World.
