ABSTRACT

Key words in my talk will be “way of representation”, “way of notation”, “symbolical formalization”, and similar ones. These concepts, deserving many distinctions in principle, are grouped here on the basis of an elementary observation: experience and common sense testify indeed that, in all scientific disciplines, the perspective on certain problems and the possibility of solving them can be drastically modified by the introduction of a new way of representation. In this notion, besides high level formalizations, I shall consider therefore also the concrete embodiment in signs, figures, graphical devices, methods for writing, short cuts to symbolization, etc. A desordered list of examples may include: figures in elementary geometry; positional notation for numbers; structure formulas in chemistry; algebraic notation for calculus; all kind of diagrams, from Descartes to Feynman; Argand-Gauss plane for complex numbers; Boolean algebra; Symbolical Dynamics; Turing machines; nonstandard notation for infinitesimals, etc. More... »
