I will propose a new view of Grothendieck toposes as unifying spaces in Mathematics being able to serve as ‘bridges’ for transferring information between distinct mathematical theories. This approach, first introduced in my Ph.D. dissertation, has already generated ramifications into different mathematical fields and points towards a realization of Topos Theory as a unifying theory of Mathematics. In the lecture, I will explain the fundamental principles that characterize my view of toposes as unifying spaces, and demonstrate the technical usefulness of these methodologies by providing applications in several distinct areas.
