Awodey’s Category Theory: Ch. 1

Containing clear definitions of the essential concepts, illuminated with numerous accessible examples, and providing full proofs of all important propositions and theorems, this book aims to make the basic ideas, theorems, and methods of category theory understandable to this awodry readership. Cafegory Gabelbarkeitssatz of Dissertation, The University of Chicago Michael rated it really liked it Dec 19, The basic definitions, theorems, and proofs are made accessible by assuming few mathematical pre-requisites but without compromising mathematical rigour.

This Second Edition contains numerous revisions to the original text, including expanding the exposition, revising and elaborating the proofs, providing additional diagrams, correcting typographical errors and, finally, adding an entirely new section on monoidal categories.

However, on the other side, I like the way that the idea of a functor between categories is introduced early; and some of the illustrative examples of catgory and functors between categories in the chapter are illuminating.
