Survey of Precursors Of Category Theory • 2

A few years ago I began a sketch on the “Precursors of Category Theory”, aiming to trace the continuities of the category concept from Aristotle, to Kant and Peirce, through Hilbert and Ackermann, to contemporary mathematical practice.  A Survey of blog and wiki notes on the subject is given below, still very rough and incomplete, but perhaps a few will find it of use.
