    Slighly adjusted the lead-in of this page: Added a line on what the book is actually about, and moved the line advertizing how great this is to after that.

    Added the line:

    The approach is echoed in Riehl & Verity 13 with Cat enhanced to the homotopy 2-category of (∞,1)-categories.

    Also touched some wording further below (“is very difficult to read” \mapsto “may be difficult to read”)

    and added the missing cross-link with John Gray (1)

    Finally, I made “formal category theory” a redirect to this page (this would deserve to point to a dedicated page, but as long as that doesn’t exit, it’s good to have it redirect here)

    Also added pointer to

    • William Lawvere, The Category of Categories as a Foundation for Mathematics, pp.1-20 in Eilenberg, Harrison, MacLane, Röhrl (eds.), Proceedings of the Conference on Categorical Algebra - La Jolla 1965, Springer Heidelberg 1966 (doi:10.1007/978-3-642-99902-4_1)

    Removing ’formal category theory’ as a redirect to this page as it deserves a page of its own.
