Abstract:

"Foundations of Geometric Cognition presents an empirically inspired theory of geometric cognition. The book explains how language and diagrams provide cognitive scaffolding for abstract geometric thinking within a context of Euclidean systems of thought. Hohol argues that geometric cognition is founded on our basic spatial abilities and requires interactions between concrete spatial representations and abstract linguistic ones. Drawing on research from diverse fields including psychology, cognitive science, and mathematics, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in the burgeoning field of geometric cognition"--
