About the Origin of Mathematics

De l’origine des mathématiques, by Clémence Gandillot

If men find mathematics difficult, it is their own fault… Clémence Gandillot ends her short essay on mathematics with this sententious conclusion. And it perfectly summarizes her ideas: mathematics is the image of man and woman. Calculations are felt before even being solved; besides, adding two humans divides a cell that multiplies into a small one who will be subtracted from its mother to become a result… The whole book is a mix of philosophy and comics.
