I am very much excited about Lynn Gordon Calvert's new book. By developing the features of a discourse of mathematical conversation she opens a new way of thinking about mathematical knowing which is more in line with an embodied, coemergent, interactivist view of such knowing. Gordon Calvert provides readers with occasions to change and enrich their understandings of mathematics, its knowing and its teaching. (Tom Kieren, University of Alberta) What we gain from this book is an alternative way of looking at mathematical discourse. Gordon Calvert's treatment of mathematical conversation goes well beyond expanding current approaches to discourse. It provides a framework for reconceptualizing it and, in doing so, merges discourse and mathematics into an inseparable whole. (Erna Yackel, Purdue University Calumet)
