Rediscovery

I hold with the Swiss psychologist Jean Piaget that the process of learning mathematics is itself a process of rediscovery. A similar view was expressed by the logician Ludwig Witgenstein, asserting in the preface to his famous Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus that he would probably not be understood except by those who had already had similar thoughts themselves.
