The “Arts of Thinking” Mathematics: introduction and case studies in Ethnomathematics, 2020-21

Des « arts de penser » les mathématiques : introduction et études de cas en ethnomathématique (2020-21)

Published on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

What do we have to gain epistemologically by broadening our point of view on mathematics by including all activities of an “arithmetic”, “geometric” or even “algorithmic” nature (braiding, divination, navigation, games, music, etc.), practiced in the past and / or nowadays in various societies? First, the seminar will address this central question of ethnomathematics by introducing the work carried out over the past few decades in this young interdisciplinary field. Secondly, we will present current research aimed at studying different mathematical practices involved in procedural / technical (textile production, string games, paper folding), musical, and counting activities.

Announcement

This seminar is the continuity of "Practices, Artefacts and Mathematics: Ethnomathematics, Anthropology, History."
