Are shapes intrinsic?

Philosophical Studies 133 (1):111 - 130 (2007)
Abstract
It is widely believed that shapes are intrinsic properties. But this claim is hard to defend. I survey all known theories of shape properties, and argue that each theory is either incompatible with the claim that shapes are intrinsic, or can be shown to be false.
