Computer science is emerging as one of the most enabling sciences of the century. While its physical basis lies in the applications of quantum mechanics -- producing the transistor and integrated circuits -- its impact rest equally on software abstractions -- a nonphysical basis. These abstractions are elaborated by mathematics, but they rest on a theoretical foundation which is not purely mathematical. This foundation is the subject of the article.
