This is the result of Becker׳s encounter with the two traditions of thinking about space: Husserlian transcendental phenomenology and Blaschke׳s equiaffine differential geometry. I reconstruct the mathematical content of the Becker–Blaschke solution to the problem of space and highlight the philosophical ideas that guide this construction. This permits me to underline some common properties of Riemannian and Minkowskian manifolds in terms of an unusual notion of isotropy. Finally, I will use this construction as a support to analyze several philosophical differences between Weyl׳s and Becker׳s proposals.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
