There is a close but underexploited analogy between the Euler characteristic of a topological space and the cardinality of a set. Taking this as inspiration, I will give a definition of the “magnitude” of an enriched category. From this single definition can be derived many cardinalitylike invariants (some old, some new): the Euler characteristic of a manifold or orbifold, the Euler characteristic of a category, the magnitude of a metric space, the Euler characteristic of a Koszul algebra, and more. I will give an overview. For an informal preview and discussion, see
