Author's Abstract

    The article focuses on the composition of different versions of structuralism in mathematical objects. According to the article, different versions of structuralism correspond to different interpretations of the relevant notion of form implicit in mathematical practice. The idea of structuralism states that mathematical objects are positions in structural universals1, constituted by the relations they bear to the other positions in the structures to which they belong.
