Talk:Axiom of Choice Implies Zorn's Lemma
Swap proof 1 and proof 2?
I propose we swap Proof 1 and Proof 2; while Proof 1 offers a good perspective, if it the first proof somebody sees, they will be lead to believe that Zorn's lemma is much more complicated than it really is. --Joelbrennan (talk) 19:04, 19 April 2019
- Well, maybe -- but Proof 1 uses elementary results and concepts that an entry-level mathematician can understand, and hence can follow. Proof 2 uses concepts that are not immediately accessible, and so if Proof 2 is the first proof somebody sees, they are likely to give up and go away, because they can't understand the language.
