**Outline Of Category Theory**

The following outline is provided as an overview of and guide to category theory:

**Category theory** – area of study in mathematics that examines in an abstract way the properties of particular mathematical concepts, by formalising them as collections of *objects* and *arrows* (also called morphisms, although this term also has a specific, non category-theoretical sense), where these collections satisfy certain basic conditions. Many significant areas of mathematics can be formalised as categories, and the use of category theory allows many intricate and subtle mathematical results in these fields to be stated, and proved, in a much simpler way than without the use of categories.

“One by one objects are defined—

It quickens: clarity, *outline of* leaf

But now the stark dignity of

entrance—Still, the profound change

has come upon them: rooted, they

grip down and begin to awaken”

—William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

“The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any- price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick *theory* of life.”

—Theodore Roosevelt (1858–1919)

“The beginning of an acquaintance whether with persons or things is to get a definite *outline* of our ignorance.”

—George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

“Despair is typical of those who do not understand the causes of evil, see no way out, and are incapable of struggle. The modern industrial proletariat does not belong to the *category* of such classes.”
