 To establish a set of axioms that describe or govern certain phenomena

 For toposes were invented by Grothendieck in the sixties for specific purposes in algebraic geometry and algebraic topology. Later on, Lawvere and Tierney [11] axiomatized the notion of an elementary topos with the goal of providing an appropriate foundation for differential geometry.
