Structures, philosophy: structures are properties of an object, a set, or a domain of objects which determine the constitution and possible formability of this object, this set, or this domain. The properties defining the structure may be derived from the objects, e.g. magnetic forces or electric charge or can be imprinted on the objects such as e.g. the mathematical operations of multiplication or addition. See also order, system, relations.

Christian Thiel on Structures - Dictionary of Arguments

Thiel I 65
Rules/Structure/Mathematics/Thiel: in all examples we have not only searched for suitable rules, on whose premises our data "fit", but rather the application of rules has only been made possible by structuring, by entering a very specific structure of the problem situation and argumentation possibilities related to it into the problem handling.
Example Pythagorean theorem: here the right-angled triangle had to be inserted first. E.g. irrationality of root two: here the alienation of the divisor had to be recognized as an essential property.
