About this book

This book is about mathematical ideas, about what mathematics means – and why. Abstract ideas, for the most part, arise via conceptual metaphor-metaphorical ideas projecting from the way we function in the everyday physical world. Where Mathematics Comes From argues that conceptual metaphor plays a central role in mathematical ideas within the cognitive unconscious – from arithmetic and algebra to sets and logic to infinity in all of its forms.
