Abstract: In [6] D. G. Quillen developed homotopy theory in categories satisfying certain axioms. He showed that many results in classical homotopy theory (of topological spaces) go through in his axiomatic set-up. The duality observed by Eckmann-Hilton in classical homotopy theory is reflected in the axioms of a model category. In [7] we developed the theory of numerical invariants like the Lusternik-Schnirelmann category and cocategory etc. for such model categories and in [8] we dealt with applications of this theory to injective and projective homotopy theory of modules as developed by Hilton [2], [3, Chapter 13].

Contrary to the general expectations there are many aspects of classical homotopy theory which cannot be carried over to Quillen's axiomatic set-up. This paper deals with some of these phenomena.
