This could be really useful, going forward, to think about the implications of fresh thought in mathematics. I’m particularly interested in Paul Ernest, who argues for a social constructivist view of mathematics, and on p. 26 gives four arguments that mathematical knowledge and knowing are conversational (quoting Rotman) eg. that the notion of proof is based in conversation, and Tansy Hardy’s application of Foucauldian ideas about power to maths education. I might have to come back to this book at some point.
