Anyway there isn’t a best book to thfory 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: And the n-lab is a great resource, but mostly dazzles my eyes Post as a guest Name.
Normal and exact categories. My opinion is that one should learn most of category theory before one actually learns category theory, in the form of examples.
Such a pity, that I just missed the chance to meet the author in person. 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:.
Student has no knowledge of 1-category theory or simplicial sets and wishes to get the flavor of infinity-category theory, without getting bogged down by technical details, in as short a time as can be reasonably expected. Email Required, but never shown. You may find this helpful: See the nLab page metacategory http: I found the Catsters on YouTube divinely useful. I doubt that someone could learn higher category theory and more in general higher dimensional algebra without first studying a little of category theory, mostly because the definition given in such context use categofy lot of category theoretic machinery.
Rarely have I had catetory question about categories which it has been unable to answer. Category Theory in Context by Emily Riehl. Functors that preserve and reflect limits.
My full review can be found here. New categories from old.
Note that it is provided in German only. Repeating what Giorgio Mossa wrote, 0 has an abundant number of examples from topology, algebra, and theoretical computer science. Handbook of Categorical Algebra 2: It gives an herroich to category theory assuming only minimal knowledge in set theory, algebra or topology.
Leinster’s “Higher Operads Higher Categories” http: Eugenia Cheng’s notes on category theory was tremendously useful. Algebraic categories and algebraic functors.

After you have read one of these book, you could also use Borceux’s books and read some more advanced chapter of category theory which aren’t discussed in the previous books.
The title question looks like it’s asking the best book to learn category theory from which anyway may be impossible to answer; different books address different needsbut the actual question seems to be whether you need to learn 1-category categorg before some of the more modern theories.
Generating, extremal mono and extremal generating, mono factorizations. John Categorh, in his not so weekly blog, inspiring. Sign up using Email and Password. Higher Topos Theory http: Simplicial Homotopy Theory http: The finished text did not disappoint. Horst Herrlich was professor of mathematics at the University of Bremen, Germany. So the next generation will be, so to speak, natively theorg. Categories of Sheaves For higher category theory I know just few reference: Abstract and Concrete Categories: Sigma Series in Pure Mathematics — Volume 1.
Natural transformations and natural isomorphisms. Sets for mathematicians is pretty.
The fact that the book appears in a 3rd edition proves that the authors achieved their goals. Sections, retractions, and isomorphisms. The paper can be obtained at She posted her evolving notes at her website each time and the first time Theofy saw a rough draft, I knew she was writing something special.
I’m a fan of Kashiwara and Schapira’s “Categories and sheaves” Monomorphisms, epimorphisms, and bimorphisms. A lot of thanks to Konrad S. Student has knowledge of 1-category theory but not simplicial sets and wishes to get an in depth experience of infinity-category theory, allowing an ‘ample’ amount of time.
Initial, terminal, and zero objects. An elementary illustrated introduction to simplicial sets 2 J. Limits in functor categories. Eventually, Mac Lane began to make sense, as did Borceux; but oh, ever so slowly. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Is Mac Lane still the best place to start? Hope this may help.
The implicit assumption is that the student has a budget of zero dollars.
