I will explain that the induction principle J for Martin-Lof’s identity types amounts to the Yoneda Lemma, when types are seen as infty-groupoids (and hence categories). This holds internally in MLTT : from J we derive the Yoneda Lemma, and conversely from the Yoneda Lemma we derive J. Moreover, the computation rule for Yoneda gives the computation rule for J, and vice versa.
