The need to address the appropriate three-dimensional generalization of category (tricategory) has been felt in homotopy theory, low-dimensional topology, cohomology theory, category theory, and quantum field theory. Benabou's bicategories provide the two-dimensional notion into which examples naturally fit. In developing the theory of bicategories it is very reassuring to know the coherence theorem: They can be replaced by the stricter 2-categories which are merely categories enriched in the category of categories.
