This suggests conceptuxl we all carry around with us, perhaps subconsciously, a reliable body of operating principles for manipulating sets. Examples of universal constructions. I would imagine that many people who think that they are not good at math are simply lacking the conceptual ideas that are taught in this book. The resulting axioms are ten thoroughly mundane statements about sets. Steven Collins rated it really liked it May 25, Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

Conceptual mathematics is sort of the bridge between philosophical logic and math, so the student is exposed to concepts much more mqthematics operational mathematics. Higher universal mapping properties.
In this work, the authors lay out the concepts of conceptual mathematics in a way that is very understandable to students and to self-learners. My library Help Advanced Conceotual Search.

A First Introduction to Categories F. I have also not seen ZFC covered in a transition course, and I don’t think it would be wise to do so outside of certain exceptional circumstances. It is also a gentle introduction to Category Theory, but with an emphasis on modeling scientific ideas. I’d stick with the suggestions from the other question.
Lucio Torre rated it really liked it Jan 30, It came up in Amazon recommendations when I was browsing for Haskell books and I thought I would give it a try. Subobject classifiers for high school students! Marc rated it it was ok Aug 02, The first pages or so I really enjoyed, but after that, the book gradually became increasingly difficult mathemagics follow.
Leinster makes it a point to dispel a few misconceptions about Lawvere’s presentation, lzwvere, 1 that an underlying goal is to replace set theory with category theory; 2 that the axiomatization requires greater mathematical maturity than other systems e. The last time I was teaching for a set-theory-like proof-course we used the first half of Wilder’s classic text: Written by two of the best known names in categorical logic, this is the first book to apply categories to the most elementary mathematics.
Great book on category theory with well thought out explanations.
