In this introductory talk, we will describe the calculus of functors for endofunctors on the category of based spaces. We will explain, from the ground up, how the calculus produces a tower of fibrations that in favourable situations `converges' to the input functor. We will particularly focus on the weird and wonderful properties of the identity functor.
