Product Description

Review

'The book makes a lively, well-informed, and thoroughly unconventional contribution to its subject … it should and will be read by any with an interest in this branch of anthropology.' R. H. Barnes, Anthropos

'Crump has soothed, stimulated, and occasionally transported me in the contemplation of numbers and mysteries.' Eric Korn, The London Review of Books

Book Description

Numbers are an important feature of almost all known cultures. This detailed anthropological study examines how people from a wide range of cultures and historical backgrounds use and understand numbers. By looking at the logical, linguistical and psychological implications, the author analyses how numbers operate within different contexts.
