We present the category-theoretic notion of adjunction in a way that makes it easy to formally <i>calculate</i> with it; an acquaintance with its algebraic properties may greatly help in understanding the notion. It is illustrated by means of a lot of theorems and proofs. We also attempt to provide some intuitive understanding of adjunctions by various discussions. Our intended readership is familiar with the notion of category, functor, and naturality, and either about to learn about adjunctions or interested in a <i>calculational</i> approach to category theory.
