Abstract

We think of a set as a collection of objects viewed as a single entity. This description should not be regarded as a definition of a set since in it “set” is given in terms of “collection” and the latter is, in turn, in need of definition. Let us rather consider the opening sentence merely as a guide for our intuition about sets.
