Abstract: In this course we plan to give definitions, (plenty of) examples, and basic properties of categories, morphisms, isomorphisms, monomorphisms and epimorphisms, initial, terminal, and zero objects, functors, morphisms of functors, representable functors, and adjoints. The aim of the course will be to show how most of the common contructions in Mathematics are adjoints.
