We discusses central aspects of history of the concept of an affine differentiable manifold, as a proposal confirming the need for using some quantitative methods (drawn from elementary Model Theory) in Mathematical Historiography. In particular, we proves as this geometric structure is a syntactic rigid designator in the sense of Kripke-Putnam.

Abstract

We discusses central aspects of history of the concept of an affine differentiable manifold, as a proposal confirming the need for using some quantitative methods (drawn from elementary Model Theory) in Mathematical Historiography. In particular, we proves as this geometric structure is a syntactic rigid designator in the sense of Kripke-Putnam.
