The algebraization of geometry resulting from the new method had very important consequences on its organization. One of the most fundamental, from the point of view of our research, is that linearity in geometry became much more essential. In this context indeed, it is quite natural to consider linear equations as the most basic type of equation, which makes straight lines the most basic curves in geometry which was not that clear until then, as straight lines and circles 18 constituted traditionally a same category called plane loci .

This choice, that Grassmann himself calls unusual in mathematics, gives a specific rhythm to the work. Instead of concise definitions, several concepts emerge from different perspectives in a slow and seemingly repetitive process (it could even seem contradictory in some cases). If this has been a reason for bad reception and difficulties in understanding Grassmann's ideas, it is also precious for historians since it sheds light on the whole process of invention that was at work in the development of this theory.

2. the possibility of the same definition of dependence between equations and ntuples. 3. the anticipation of the concept of duality and the consideration of all the systems of equations which have the same set of solutions. Of course, these three sources of difficulties are not independent, and the progress overcoming any one of them influenced that overcoming the other two. As was pointed out in Euler's work, he concept of inclusive dependence remained but was also rapidly connected to the evanescence of the main determinant of a square system of linear equations.
