Theorem zorn 8876
Description: Zorn's Lemma. If the union of every chain (with respect to inclusion) in a set belongs to the set, then the set contains a maximal element. This theorem is equivalent to the Axiom of Choice. Theorem 6M of [Enderton] p. 151. See zorn2 8875 for a version with general partial orderings. (Contributed by NM, 12-Aug-2004.)
