That's a really hard book to find...

There is also the book Emerton reffered in a comment above. It's called "Mathematical Developments Arising from Hilbert Problems" and it is published by the AMS

Michael Spivak has recently written a book called "Physics for Mathematicians: Mechanics I". I haven't seen it and it's a bit expensive on Amazon, but it might be just what you want (but as far as I can tell it's "only" about classical mechanics...)

I think Steve Awodey's "Category theory" might be just right for you.

Thank you for your suggestions I will look for Katz and Deligne's articles. I am aware of Freitag and Kiehl's textbook, unfortunately it's a hard to find. I was thinking of a textbook that would use the Weil conjectures as a "leitmotiv" while introducing some of the more modern characters in algebraic geometry. But maybe it can't be done (at least at level I would understand...).

Thanks Dylan. Tim: it would be great indeed if JB would publish his "higher algebra" but his past expository work is already amazing. Tom: I am aware of that paper (and you also have some sections about it on your wonderful book) but I was thinking about a full textbook presentation that might have more examples and applications.
