At the risk of exposing myself as a complete ignoramus--and allowing for
the fact that something may have come along in set theory in the twenty
five years since I took it in high school--what is a Renn diagram? is it
the same thing that used to be called a *Venn* diagram? I am sure that
that's what old Mr. McDiarmid (and my math textbook) called those little
pictures of intersecting circles.
