### Zorn's Lemma Implies Zermelo's Well-Ordering Theorem

Prologue: $2$. Orderings: $(\text P.3)$:

*Every nonempty set $X$ can be well-ordered.*

*Consider the collection $\WW$ of well orderings of subsets of $X$.**Such well orderings may be regarded as subsets of $X \times X$, so $\WW$ is partially ordered by inclusion.**It is easy to verify that the hypotheses of Zorn's lemma are satisfied, so $\WW$ has a maximal element.*
