Abstract

We discusses central aspects of history of the concept of an affinedifferentiable manifold, as a proposal confirming the need for using somequantitative methods (drawn from elementary Model Theory) in MathematicalHistoriography. In particular, we proves as this geometric structureis a syntactic rigid designator in the sense of Kripke-Putnam.
