Book Description

Conceptual Mathematics is the first book to serve as a skeleton key to mathematics for the general reader and as an introduction to categories for computer scientists, logicians, physicists, linguists etc. This book does not presuppose knowledge of specific fields but rather develops elementary categories such as directed graphs and discrete dynamical systems from the beginning.
