The book contains a series of lectures on abstract set theory given at the University of Notre Dame during the Fall Semester 1957-58.

This document contains the mathematical foundation of set theory. Goal is the presentation of elementary results which are needed in other disciplines. Although the presentation is axiomatic the results shall match the mathematical usage.
