This chapter examines the construction and properties of limits, as well as the relation of limits to adjoints. This relation is then used in the basic existence theorems for adjoint functors, which give universals and adjoints in a wide variety of cases. The chapter closes with some indications of the uses of adjoint functors in topology.
