Here is a sketch of how the skein relations appear in the approach to knot invariants based on braided monoidal categories coming e.g. from representations of quantum groups. Suppose $V$ is a dualizable object in a braided monoidal category $(C, \otimes)$. This means, among other things, that $V^{\otimes n}$ acquires an action of the braid group $B_n$, and ...
