This is well-motivated, with Goldblatt using analogies to set-theoretical ideas which might have been disdained by a category theory purist. Beginning with a survey of set theory and its role in mathematics, the text proceeds to definitions goldbkatt examples of categories and explains the use of arrows in place of set-membership.

If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Socrates and Meno are two, no matter how isomorphic they are with respect to the form of rationality. Category theory then is the subject that provides an abstract formulation of the idea of mathematical isomorphism and studies notions that are invariant under all forms of isomorphism.
