Zermelo began to work on the problems of set theory, in particular taking up Hilbert's idea to head towards a resolution of the problem of the continuum hypothesis.
Although Zermelo certainly gained fame for his proof of the well ordering property, set theory at this time was in the rather unusual position that many mathematicians rejected the type of proofs that Zermelo had discovered.
Zermelo made other fundamental contributions to axiomatic set theory which were partly a consequence of the criticism of his first major contribution to the subject and partly because set theory began to become an important research topic at Göttingen.

Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Zermelo (July 27, 1871 - May 21, 1953) was a German mathematician.
In 1897, Zermelo went to Göttingen, at that time the leading centre for mathematical research in the world, where he completed his thesis in 1899.

Zermelo was born in Berlin and studied at Halle and Freiburg.
In 1900 Zermelo provided an ingenious proof to the well-ordering theorem, which states that every set can be well ordered (that is, can be arranged in a series in which each subclass - not being null - has a first term).
In 1904 Zermelo defined the axiom of choice, the use of which had previously been unrecognized in mathematical reasoning.

 Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Zermelo
Ernst Zermelo's father was a college professor, so Zermelo was brought up in a family where academic pursuits were encouraged.
At this stage Zermelo's work was turning more towards areas of applied mathematics and, under Planck's guidance, he began to work for his habilitation thesis studying hydrodynamics.
Zermelo's reaction to these criticisms was to try to prove the well ordering property with a proof that would find more widespread acceptance, and this he succeeded in doing in 1908.

The first axiomatisation of set theory published by Ernst Zermelo in 1908 [Zermelo08] in response to the antinomies found in informal set theory by Russell and others.
Zermelo's system includes the axiom of choice, but the letter "Z" is now normally used to refer to his system with the axiom of choice omitted.
Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory, an axiomatisation of set theory consisting of Zermelo set theory (see above) strengthened with the axiom of replacement, due to Abraham Fraenkel, the effect of which is to ensure that any collection of sets which can be shown to be no greater in size than an existing set is itself a set.

 Practical Foundations of Mathematics
The subsequent work sought to formalise them in terms of a notion of membership in which any entity in the universe may serve either as an element or as a set, and where it is legitimate to ask of any two entities whether one bears this relation to the other.
Why Zermelo made the choice he did between ordered and unordered pairs is perhaps worthy of historical study, though it seems unlikely that it actually occurred to him that he was making any significant decision at all.
After Zermelo, more axioms were added to set theory in an endeavour to formulate the strongest system that would remain consistent, in which everything anyone could possibly want would be provable, and the model would be unique.
