Translating the World begins by showing how discursive and writing strategies contribute to the ontology and epistemology of science, which includes understanding the special ways in which science uses language, whether it is natural language, mathematics or other semiotic systems. What this study reveals is that mathematics is not simply about logic and deduction, but also has unique strategies of writing its 'alphabets,' uses rhetoric, draws upon metaphorical images and has an essential relationship to natural language.
