'Sfard has provided us with one of the most impressive, unified, homogenous theories of learning …' Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning
This book looks to change our thinking about thinking by looking at communication and cognition (commognition). The explanatory power of the commognitive framework and the manner in which it contributes to our understanding of human development is illustrated through commognitive analysis of mathematical discourse accompanied by vignettes from mathematics classrooms.See all Product description

An important theoretical book by Anna Sfard
3 July 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a theoretical, philosophical book by Anna Sfard in which she essentially equates thinking with communicating and dreams up a new word--commognition (or something like that). Since math ed researchers are beginning to use her ideas on discourse as a theoretical framework for their ideas, it's useful to know what she said.

I love this book because it gives a new meaning to communication and mathematics! As a result of readings from the book I am becoming more conscious of every word I use in my math class.

Anna Sfard attempts to rethink our understanding of thinking. Drawing upon Vygotsky and Wittgenstein, she attempts to conceive of thinking as an internal form of communication, and to draw out implications of this theory for psychology and mathematics education.
