Abstract

Recall, on the one hand, that mathematics has grown up in the past one hundred fifty years. With the acceptance of non-euclidean geometrics, of algebraic structures beginning with groups, and of symbolic logic, the very idea of what mathematics is had to change. It took a while for mathematicians to digest the ideas of men like Lobachevski, Galois, and Boole. The Bourbaki notion of mathematics as a 'storehouse of structures' is new in the last few decades.
