Thank you. I will read your answer with detail later. I was just aware of "homotopy colimits" in the category of topological spaces, not in any more general sense.

@ZhenLin: Thanks. I'll roll up my sleeves and diagram-chase in that particular case then, I guess. I'm intrigued about your comment about homotopy colimits though, if you would like to expand on it (maybe as an answer?) it would be great :)

@Zhen: What if one of the arrows is a monomorphism (in the case of the pushout)?

comment Mayer-Vietoris Type Sequence For Pushouts
One little comment. A nice reference for homotopy pushouts/pullbacks is Arkowitz's Introduction to homotopy theory. In particular, the second sentence of your second paragraph is proposition 6.2.6.

comment Simply connected reduced suspension on path connected X
@JuanS: I haven't read the posts in detail, but in the first one the counterexample he produces involved the Hawaiian earring which does not satisfy the hypotheses of Freudenthal's suspension theorem.

comment The groups $[\Sigma^nX,Y]$ versus the homotopy groups
@nik: I understand what you're saying now. But the questions are the end are to be taken to mean: "in these circumstances, does the knowledge of these groups for all $X$ give us information?" (the questions you linked being taking $X=S^0$)

comment The groups $[\Sigma^nX,Y]$ versus the homotopy groups
@nik: as interesting as those questions may be, I don't see any reference to the groups I allude to in this one.
