Open peer commentary on the article “Enactive Metaphorizing in the Mathematical Experience” by Daniela Díaz-Rojas, Jorge Soto-Andrade & Ronnie Videla-Reyes. Abstract: Constructivist and embodied theories of learning each focus on action as the basis for cognition. However, in restricting action to sensorimotor activity, some embodied perspectives eschew abstraction and replace it with metaphor. Here, we argue that metaphors, and mathematical development itself, depend upon coordinations of actions, within structures that we call abstract.
