D'où viennent les mathématiques? : corps, esprit et imaginaire humain by Rafael Nunez( )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "D'où viennent les mathématiques ? Même le point euclidien est une idéalisation, un néant physique ... Il faut donc chercher du côté des imaginaires car les hommes utilisent des métaphores et des gestes (mouvements fictifs) pour inventer les mathématiques et les expliquer. C'est ce que propose ici Rafael Núñez en s'appuyant à la fois sur l'anthropologie et les sciences cognitives."

Da dove viene la matematica : come la mente embodied dà origine alla matematica by George Lakoff( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in Italian and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

E' il primo tentativo di proporre una metodologia rigorosa per l'analisi delle idee matematiche: un'analisi cognitiva della loro struttura, di come le idee matematiche sono radicate nell'esperienza della vita fisica quotidiana, di quali meccanismi cognitivi fanno uso e come sono collegati gli uni agli altri. Un grande ruolo è assegnato dagli autori alla metafora concettuale nella proiezione del ragionamento sensomotorio (fisico e corporeo) nel ragionamento astratto. Secondo Lakoff e Núñez, capire le idee matematiche e come sorgono dai nostri corpi e cervelli permetterà di non vedere la matematica come qualcosa di mistico e trascendente e, cosi', di capirne meglio il significato. Gli autori rinunciano ad una visione platonica della matematica, ritengono che l'unica matematica possibile è la matematica umana, derivante cioè dall'apparato cognitivo. Questa disciplina e' per loro qualcosa di concreto e tangibile, che "e' alla portata di tutti e non solo per pochi eletti."

Mathematical Idea Analysis What Embodied Cognitive Science Can Say about the Human Nature of Mathematics by Rafael E Nunez( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper gives a brief introduction to a discipline called the cognitive science of mathematics. The theoretical background of the arguments is based on embodied cognition and findings in cognitive linguistics. It discusses Mathematical Idea Analysis, a set of techniques for studying implicit structures in mathematics. Particular attention is paid to everyday cognitive mechanisms such as image schemas and conceptual metaphors. Some implications for mathematics education are discussed. (Contains 36 references.)

The last pictures by Trevor Paglen( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Los artefactos más perdurables de la civilización humana no son las pirámides de Egipto o las cuevas de Lascaux, sino los satélites de comunicaciones que rodean nuestro planeta. En la órbita situada encima del Ecuador, los satélites que transmiten las señales de TV, envían las llamadas telefónicas o procesan las transacciones de las tarjetas de crédito no experimentan presión atmosférica. Sus carcasas inertes continuarán a la deriva alrededor de la Tierra hasta que el sol se expanda como un gigante rojo y los engulla dentro de cuatro billones y medio de años. Se supone que los satélites de comunicaciones se convertirán en las ruinas culturales y materiales de los últimos años del siglo XX y los primeros del siglo XXI, sobreviviendo a cualquier otra creación humana. Trevor Paglen desarrolló una colección de cien imágenes que se grabaron en un “ultra-archivo”, un disco dorado de silicio. El disco fue lanzado al espacio a bordo del satélite Echostar XVI en 2012, junto a una cápsula del tiempo y un mensaje al futuro. La selección de imágenes, pieza central del libro, se llevó a cabo tras cuatro años de entrevistas a científicos, filósofos, antropólogos y artistas, con las consiguientes contradicciones que caracterizan a las civilizaciones contemporáneas. Las cien imágenes plantean algunas de las más graves cuestiones acerca de la experiencia humana, como la comunicación, el tiempo interestelar y las incertidumbres económicas, medioambientales y sociales que definen nuestro momento histórico
