Stanislas Dehaene, from the Collège de France, demonstrated that the ability to estimate quantities forms the basis of the human being's mathematical (abstract reasoning) and arithmetic (calculation) skills. Part of his research has been reported in this exhibition. The arithmetic case requires a developed symbolic system, such as a system of language.
