As in science in general, in computer science there is a desire to unify general concepts. The notion of object has recently emerged as a promising answer to such desires. This article examines the seemingly simple notion of object from conceptual, philosophical, data abstraction, implementation, and formal viewpoints. We hope to provide new insights into what objects in object-oriented programming are, and an extensive literature analysis on the subject.
