## Idea

Recall (here) that a set may be understood as a thin univalent (0,1)-dagger category, hence as a thin univalent dagger-category enriched over the cartesian monoidal proset of truth values. In generalization, one may speak of enriching preorders over other monoidal posets.

## Defintion

Let $(M, \leq, \otimes, 1)$ be a monoidal poset. A $M$-enriched symmetric proset or symmetric proset enriched over/in $M$ is a set $P$ with a binary function $o:P \times P \to M$ such that

• for every $a \in P$, $b \in P$, and $c \in P$, $o(a, b) \otimes o(b, c) \leq o(a, c)$

• for every $a \in P$ and $b \in P$, $o(a, b) \leq o(b, a)$

• for every $a \in P$, $1 \leq o(a, a)$

An $M$-enriched set or set enriched over/in $M$ is an $M$-enriched symmetric proset which additinally satisfies $1 \leq o(a, b) \Rightarrow a = b$.

For $M$-enriched sets, $o(a, b) = o(b, a)$, $o(a, a) = 1$, and $1 = o(a, b) \Rightarrow a = b$.

## Examples

• An ordinary set is just an $\Omega$-enriched set, with $\Omega$ the set of truth values.

• A metric space is a $(\mathbb{R}_{\geq 0}, \geq, +, 0)$-enriched set, where $\mathbb{R}_{\geq 0}$ are the non-negative Dedekind real numbers.

• Given any Archimedean integral domain $A$ and an Archimedean integral subdomain $B \subseteq A$, then $B$ is an $(A_{\geq 0}, \geq, +, 0)$-enriched set, where $A_{\geq 0}$ is the non-negative elements of $A$.

• A set with an apartness relation is an $\Omega^\op$-enriched symmetric proset, where the co-Heyting algebra $\Omega^\op$ is the opposite poset of the set of truth values $\Omega$.
