# Abstract algebra

I was wondering if there is a field of mathematics which lies beyond and higher than abstract algebra? If it exists could someone tell me the name of that field? Thanks.

There are many fields of abstract mathematics. They are generally not "ordered" so that we cannot think of one as being "beyond and higher" than another. But I think perhaps "Category Theory" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category_theory) might qualify here.
