Abstract

In this paper I study the development of arithmetical cognition with the focus on metaphorical thinking. In an approach developing on Lakoff and Núñez (2000), I propose one particular conceptual metaphor, the Process → Object Metaphor (POM), as a key element in understanding the development of mathematical thinking.
