Abstract:     
A systems theoretical thinking on the categorial object and morphism is developed, leading to a reflection on the philosophical and mathematical foundations of category theory, which allows for the introduction of a formal language for category theory and of a categorial calculus as a morphic web-based logical calculus. A formal system, built from such calculus, is proposed and the logical semantics is addressed. Both syntax and semantics are independent from set theory.
