It is really an excellent exposition with some nice perspectives on the concepts, supported by plenty of examples. I found the Catsters on YouTube divinely useful.

The paper can be obtained at Normal and exact categories. Categories of Sheaves For higher category theory I know just few reference: The Joy of Cats 1 G. Each chapter contains numerous exercises for further study and control. Rarely have I had a question about categories which it has herrich unable to answer. ACC is good too, but also rather idiosyncratic in different ways than Mac Lane.

Horst Herrlich was professor of mathematics at the University of Bremen, Germany. Sets, classes, and conglomerates.

You may find this helpful: The book is designed for use during the early stages of graduate study — or for ambitious undergraduates. It gives an introduction to category theory assuming only minimal knowledge in set theory, algebra or topology.

There’s a bit of truth to that, Mariano, although “most of category theory” is an exaggeration, and it doesn’t address the OP’s concern.

MacLane’s “Category theory for working mathematicians” may be a little outdated but I think it is still one of the most complete book of basic category theory second just to Borceux’s books. As theoty as a textbook for 1-category theory goes, I’m fond of Awodey’s book.

I wish it was the one I’d learned from. I just reviewed what I firmly believe will be the book that will replace MacLane as The Gold Standard for introductions to category theory for graduate students: I’m a fan of Kashiwara and Schapira’s “Categories and sheaves” The finished text did not disappoint. Anyway there isn’t a best book to learn basic category theory, any person could find a book better than another one, so I suggest you to take a look a some of these books, then choose which one is the best for you:.

Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Handbook of Categorical Algebra 1: She posted her evolving notes at her website each time and the first time I saw a rough draft, I knew she was writing something special. I learned alot from there. Sign up using Email and Password.


Sign up using Facebook. Category theory Peculiar because it has very low prerequisites and it’s rich of examples too. Constant morphisms, zero morphisms, and pointed categories.

Yeah, I’d theody they’re separate enough and you’re better off reading Riehl and then moving on to EGNO’s Tensor Categories if you’re wanting to know more about monoidal categories.

Hope this may help. The attempt is made to present category theory mainly as a convenient language — one which ties together widespread notions, which puts many existing results in their proper perspective, and which provides a means for appreciation of the unity that exists in modern mathematics, despite the increasing tendencies toward fragmentation and specialization. If not, what’s the most efficient path through the classical core material to a rheory perspective?
