## Abstract

The article reconsiders the position of the foundations of mathematics after the discovery of the homotopy type theory HoTT. Discussion that this discovery has generated in the community of mathematicians, philosophers and computer scientists might indicate a new crisis in the foundation of mathematics. By examining the mathematical facts behind HoTT and their relation with the existing foundations, we conclude that the present crisis is not one. We reiterate a pluralist vision of the foundations of mathematics.

The article contains a short survey of the mathematical and historical background needed to understand the main tenets of the foundational issues.
