Definable categories arose in the model theory of modules and have turned out to be a good context for additive model theory. They are also algebraically natural and much theory and many applications have been developed. The large context in which they sit ((anti-)equivalences of certain 2-categories, ) is paralleled in the non-additive/Set-based world and this has recently been shown, by Kuber and Rosicky , to run deeper than had previously seemed to be the case.
