Universal mapping properties and incidence cconceptual. Towards the end eg. Definitely the mahhematics accessible introduction to category theory in existence. My instinctive reaction is that a “category error” is being made here in the philosophical sense, not the mathematical sense of category.

Lawvere delivered an invited lecture in which he introduced an algebraic version of topos theory which united several previously ‘unrelated’ areas in geometry and in set theory; over a dozen books, several dozen international meetings, and hundreds of research papers have since appeared, continuing to develop the consequences of that unification.

Clark May 19 ’14 at I looked at some of it on amazon just now, and concetual does look to be quite carefully written and unusually friendly. Special properties a map may have.

Lavere have not gone back to try to track down its provenance. Paulo rated it it was amazing May 17, Got to Article 3, Session 11, Exercise 1 and had to put it down for a while. If so, then this topic really should be taught to more people who feel that they don’t have the aptitude to master math.

Leinster makes it a point to dispel a few misconceptions about Lawvere’s presentation, namely, 1 that an underlying goal is to replace set theory with category theory; 2 that mathemarics axiomatization requires greater mathematical maturity than other systems e.

Conceptual Mathematics: A First Introduction To Categories

Many people think of mathematics as the operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, or the complicated models used in calculus, linear modeling or differential equations. It thus serves two purposes: Using this text would involve abandoning most of the traditional content of a transitions course and, for the clientele to which the traditional content is pitched, that would be a loss.

It’s an ok book, but not great for learning for me, at least. I don’t want to be too discouraging though: Higher universal mapping properties.
