Abstract

In this paper, I will take you on a brief and brisk tour of the theory of (enriched) categories. While we won’t have time to see the theorems of category theory, we will see how the definitions unify a number of concepts across the mathematical landscape. Hopefully, this will make the role of category theory as grand analogy maker seem plausible, even if we won’t get to see what one does with those analogies.
