The book deals with the plurality of the sciences and technologies. It is about the way in which each of them develops around the prosthetics of printed languages and the models used as visual aids to help us create new modes of communication to understand and solve human problems. In this collection of essays, Yoos surveys different models that have evolved from the innate, biological forms of grammar, logic, and modes of orientation. He explores the evolution of socially constructed systems of numeracy and measurement that have evolved and developed in different languages for the use in scientific and technological communication."@en ;
