How to learn Gödel's incompleteness theorems-self study

  1. Sep 8, 2011 #1
    I am going to start my third year of a theoretical physics degree but have always had an interest in pure mathematics so I am currently teaching myself real analysis from the book "Real Analysis" by Howie. I've done some basic introductory set theory including cardinality, countability and Russell's paradox but what can I read to help me go from this level of understanding to the incompleteness theorems. Would I have to read more about set theory or go straight into formal logic?

    Any textbook recommendations would be much appreciated.
