Mind in Mathematics:

Essays on Mathematical Cognition and Mathematical Method


Mariana Bockarova (Harvard University )

Marcel Danesi (University of Toronto)

Dragana Martinovic (University of Windsor)

Rafael Núñez (University of California, San Diego) (eds.)


This volume brings together key essays by mathematicians, cognitive scientists, neuroscientists, semioticians, and educators on the nature of mathematical thought and how it unfolds in relation to language and other codes. Topics such as the role of analogy and metaphor, as well as inferential (abductive) thinking, are examined through several interdisciplinary lenses. The goal of this volume is to establish a “hermeneutic” field of study in mathematical cognition that aims to understand how mathematics dovetails with other human faculties.
