Carus, Erkenntnis 54pp. February 19, at 8: It is ostensibly aimed at the High School level. Many of the Oxford Logic Guides are described as much easier entry points than they are.

Dissertation, The University of Chicago Containing clear definitions of the essential concepts, illuminated with numerous accessible examples, and providing full categor of all important propositions and theorems, this book aims to make the basic ideas, theorems, and methods of category theory understandable to this broad readership.

I gather that category theory is much more general. It furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

Have you looked at the book Conceptual Mathematics by Lawvere and Schanuel? Yes, and I mention it here.

SfM appears to cover category theory only as applied to or limited to sets, and Topoi appears similarly gheory to logic. This text and reference book is aimed not only at mathematicians, but also researchers and students of computer science, logic, linguistics, cognitive science, philosophy, and any of the other fields in which the ideas are being applied.

This text and reference book on Category Theory, a branch of abstract algebra, is aimed not only at students of Mathematics, but also researchers and students of Computer Science, Categkry, Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Philosophy, and any of the other fields that now make use of it. Slides from a talk at CMU, March John Wiegley rated it really liked it Dec 11, For example, the whys and wherefores of the first example of a universal mapping property are not really explained that well nor why we should be particularly interested in free categories.
