Well, I wanted to get category theory straight in my head, and with this accomplished that goal Preview — Topoi by Robert Goldblatt. The diagram on 89 should look familiar to those who follow AB! Published April 28th by Dover Publications first published November Goldblatt proceeds with more or less independent chapters taking a categorial approach to different facets of mathematical logic: Socrates and Meno are two, no matter how isomorphic they are with respect to the form of rationality.
Its approach moves always from the particular to the general, following through the steps of the abstraction process until the abstract concept emerges naturally. The last third covers local truth Grothendieck topoi, geometric modality, Kripke-Joyal semanticsadjunctions and quantifiers, and logical geometry.
Injection is indistinguishable from inclusion, up to isomorphism.

In Topoi Goldblatt uses category theory to explore the logical foundations of mathematics, while using logic as the motivation for learning category theory.
The Joy of Cats. Abstract and Concrete Categories: I may want to take the zero object as an index of ideality.

Hati rated it it was amazing Nov 29, A classic introduction to mathematical logic from the perspective of category theory, this text is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students and accessible to both philosophically and mathematically oriented readers.
Explorations of categorial set theory, local truth, and adjointness and quantifiers conclude with a study of logical geometry. We can think of a category as a means of studying relations without a fixed medium, the logical equivalent of an aetherless physics.

If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Originally published in but understandably a classic, Topoi has fortunately been reprinted by Dover as a cheap paperback. Steve rated it really liked it Oct 01, Its approach moves always from the particular to the general, following through the steps of the abstraction process until the abstract concept emerges naturally.
The fact that Grp and Mon have zeros precludes them, as we shall see, from being topoi.
But in that case, as DH elucidates helpfully about the G-sentence, we can look at the matter in two ways again. Paperbackpages. The fundamental tradeoff seems to be between a capacity for intensional discrimination and a too-positively defined closure.
