Review of Giandomenico Sica (ed.) What is category theory? Polimetrica, 2006 [Book Review]

Abstract
Giandomenico Sica’s volume is a collection of eleven papers on category theory by philosophers, mathematicians, and mathematical physicists. In addition to papers of direct interest to philosophers of mathematics, the volume contains some introductory expositions of category theory along with a valuable discussion of the relationship between category theory and physics by Bob Coecke. While there are several technically difficult papers, the volume as a whole is reasonably accessible to those with some familiarity with the basics of category theory. The importance of the volume lies in the possibility that it will encourage broader interest in category theory among philosophers.
