The aim of this note is to undermine structural realism by testing the soundness of its main claim. If scientific theories represent the structure of the world, structural realism needs a general account of representation. Representation is the crux of structural realism, because structure/ontology distinction collapses. Mathematical structures are ontologyladen. Keywords: Structural realism, scientific representation, structure/ontology distinction, quantum theory, matrix and wave mechanics.doi:10.5007/1808-1711.2010v14n2p201 fatcat:22nvgjbpfnaszlhnssb7z5lvvi
