Definition df-clel 2036
 Description: Define the membership connective between classes. Theorem 6.3 of [Quine] p. 41, or Proposition 4.6 of [TakeutiZaring] p. 13, which we adopt as a definition. See these references for its metalogical justification. Note that like df-cleq 2033 it extends or "overloads" the use of the existing membership symbol, but unlike df-cleq 2033 it does not strengthen the set of valid wffs of logic when the class variables are replaced with setvar variables (see cleljust 1813), so we don't include any set theory axiom as a hypothesis. See also comments about the syntax under df-clab 2027. This is called the "axiom of membership" by [Levy] p. 338, who treats the theory of classes as an extralogical extension to our logic and set theory axioms. For a general discussion of the theory of classes, see http://us.metamath.org/mpeuni/mmset.html#class. (Contributed by NM, 5-Aug-1993.)
