Mathematical Models of Creativity
We claim that category theory is a mathematical theory, proceeding from the observation of mathematical activities and gestures, and constructing a mathematical theory as a kind of algebra of these gestures. Especially, categoricians observe their own activity, and so category theory is also constructing a mathematical theory of itself, of its own system of gestures. We imagine that this theory can be used to model any activity, by a parallel action with the categorical activity. This categorical modeling is what we need for a mathematical holding of mathematical creativity because every activity is in fact somehow an activity of modeling.
