Creating “mathematically” sustainable world: from the spirograph, a reverse path

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


The approach to the subject of mathematic learning, represents, in the pedagogical-educational field, a problematic situation. Nowadays we attend to an heated discussion on the character of the basic mathematical concepts, on the analytical-critical succession between processes and objects. The purpose of these notes is to recover and to value the contribution of the autopoiesis theory in the characterization of the mathematical domain going beyond the mere reiteration, inspecting and testing new and generative paths of ideas. In this mechanism we would insert the use of the spirograph as a disturbing, uncertain element able to nourish the “mind-system”.
