[Xmca-l] Re: The Mathematics of Mathematics



Carol,

the key point is to look at that in what people do that lets mathematicians
see that something mathematically is happening. The genetic origin of that
--- like *mathematical *reasoning first IS a social relation (not IN
relation, which is the social in a weak sense). I am developing some of the
ideas that Vygotsky sketched in the last chapter of thinking and speech
(including the Marx quotations, the marks of which have been removed from
all English translations, and paraphrases. I am situating this in a
Marxian-Spinozist perspective, not the dualist Spinoza that some say he
was, but the one who emphasized the plural singular or singular plural
nature of being. And thus the Vygotsky who writes in his personal notes
about "affect in concept," the Vygotsky who seeks to develop a A Spinozist
approach to Marxian psychology etc etc. I am copying the contents and the
cover below.

Cheers,
Michael
