"The paradigm shift from sets to categories is also one of the driving 
forces of modern math." -- Edward Frenkel, "Love and Math," p. 156.

In "Topoi: the categorial analysis of logic" by Robert Goldblatt, the title 
of the first chapter is "Mathematics = Set Theory?". He tends to think not.

I would imagine Frenkel is thinking of Goldblatt's & related work.
