For anybody interested, set theory was the dominant theory for much of the 20th century. Every other theory was reexamined in terms of set theory. It was one of the driving forces behind the New Math of the 60s, which ended up being a step backwards in math education. University professors were enamoured with set theory but didn't know how K-12 education worked so it was a big failure.
