Yoneda Perspectives

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews and completes the inherent paradigm change from “object-based” to functorial mathematics which was initiated by category theory, and completed in the celebrated Yoneda Lemma. Beyond an apparant technical innocence, this lemma introduced a revolution in understanding structures of general types, and transcending pure mathematics. Its implications touch general hermeneutics as well as esthetics of art, and—quite paradoxically!—principles of “object-oriented” programming.
