Dear All,

Following in the footsteps of late Professor Charles Ehresmann (1966), who suggested that category theory--in light of its unifying mathematical concepts and constructions--should be taught as early as linear algebra, I made a case for learning and teaching category theory beginning with pre-university in our Science eLetter:

Universal yearning for understanding

Your time permitting, please critique.

I look forward to your corrections of any mistakes I might have made in my characterization of category theory.

Thanking you,

posina
