The alternative is to think of literacy broadly – and scientific literacy specifically – as being the possession of a core set of intellectual constructs that provide the means to read, parse, and make some sense of a wider array of new information.

In recent years, much discussion has been devoted to the relation between cognition and mathematical practice, thanks to the work of cognitive scientists, philosophers and historians of mathematics devoted to the topic. Initially, the investigation focused in particular on the question which 'core' cognitive systems might ground several mathematical notions and results -- especially the number concept, but also elementary geometry. More recently it has moved towards discussion of mathematics as a product of 'embodied cognition', evaluating the role of conceptual metaphors, bodily experience, and external representations in mathematical practice and mathematical understanding. Some of these proposals claim that mathematics is a unique type of human conceptual system, which is sustained by specific neural activity and bodily functions, and brought forth via the recruitment of everyday cognitive mechanisms that make human imagination, abstraction, and notation-making processes possible. The question of the nature of mathematics has been addressed as an empirical question subject to methodological investigations of an interdisciplinary nature, involving hypothesis testing. At the same time, however, such claims have been received with skepticism, be it that they are considered premature or because their actual links with mathematical knowledge (properly speaking) are found wanting.
This workshop will address the question, what brings us from basic cognition to the practice of mathematics, gathering together scholars from different disciplines with the aim to develop common points of view. The focus will be, primarily, on what separates mathematics properly speaking from basic cognition, and which cognitive ingredients may act as bridges between both.
