There are loads of questions about best references for topology. However, I'm posting this one because I'm sure it is quite different.
I have started reading Bourbaki General Topology I and I feel comfortable with the first 5 sections. Maybe Bourbaki's Theory of Sets has too much weight sometimes (for example he focuses on canonical decompositions too much in my opinion). But I think the book introduces the topological concepts in a very simple way, saying a lot with few words. However, sections 6 starts with filters. I could skip this section but some other definitions use filters so...
Hence, I decided to look at othere references. In particular Kuratowski's books. But the treatment is horrible in my opinion. I also found Degundji and Willard. They seems good. Moreover, Degundji has an approach near differential and algebraic topology, which is the topology I'm interested in.
So my question(s) is(are): Are filters avoidable in topology or we need it to define some concepts? If they are necessary, should I continue with Bourbaki's book or move to one of the others?
