The basic definitions, theorems, and proofs are made accessible by assuming few mathematical pre-requisites but without compromising mathematical rigour. June 9, at For example, the categoory and wherefores of the first example of a universal mapping property are not really explained that well nor why we should be particularly interested in free categories.

December 6, at 1: However, maybe category theory proper is so abstract that the theorh way to learn it is to first learn it as applied to theorh or logic. Awodey, The Bulletin of Symbolic Logic However, on the other side, I like the way that the idea of a functor between categories is introduced early; and some of the illustrative examples of categories and functors between categories in the chapter are illuminating.
