Notable in particular for F.W. Lawvere’s Survey Lecture “Thoughts on the Future of Category Theory” and the debate generated.  A General Discussion Session of the Congress contained some very interesting exchanges. Contributions to the discussions by Freyd, Johnstone, Benabou and Samuel Eilenberg (making his last appearance at an International Mathematical Meeting) were particularly worthy of note and of record

24 recordings.  Plus notes and aide-memoire of a short interview/discussion with Samuel Eilenberg
