Abstraction structurale et idéalisme matériel. Vuillemin et le problème de l'espace

Abstract : The objective of this article is to show that Jules Vuillemin’s study of algebraic structures in the 1960s would enable him to identify a structural conception of abstraction from which he derived a nomological way of understanding objectivity. These two concepts will then be revisited many years later to propose a construction of the representative space that Vuillemin conceives as a refutation of Berkeley’s material idealism. The possibility of retracing the genesis of our spatial notions and of guaranteeing them a certain objectivity would thus be made possible by borrowing from the methods of modern algebra, in accordance with the spirit of La Philosophie de l’algèbre.
