I am very new to set theory and have only learned the basics up to cardinal and ordinal aritmetic. I would like to learn about large cardinals and I am reading Thomas Jech's Set Theory. I have read that Kanamori's book is a good resource but I think that one is a bit advanced for me still. Are there any other books out there? Also is there a book that looks at the philosophical aspects of the subject and is less technical? Thanks:)
