The 20th century perspective found it more flexible to base
everything on set theory (or category theory or similar)
which is fundamentally relational.  Historically
hierarchical/network databases preceded rdbms's because they
are fundamentally more efficient.  Unfortunately, they are
also fundamentally more inflexible (it is generally agreed).
