I'm very interested in learning abstract algebra and category theory on my own. It seems a very powerful tool in math and it seems worthwile to take a time and learn about it. I just don't know even where to begin. Can someone point out for me what are good references to self-study those topics ? I'm really beginner, the only thing connected to algebra that I'm familiar with is linear algebra.
Thanks very much in advance.
Edit: Until now I've studied analytic geometry, single variable calculus, multivariable calculus, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations and I'm currently studying differential geometry and multilinear algebra.
