In a footnote taking a swipe at philosophers Bourbaki cites "the case of 
an eminent academic who, in a lecture at Princeton in the presence of 
Goedel is supposed to have said that nothing new had happened in logic 
since Aristotle". Does anyone know the origin of this story, or who the 
eminent academic is supposed to have been?
