The Deceptions of Mathematics

I am published this morning on the subject of mathematics (click here): The Deceptions of Mathematics. I joke that mathematics will be off school curricula by the end of the week. OBSERVATION: We have strong assumptions about mathematics -- beliefs about mathematics, one could say -- which I challenge here. Mathematics, I propose, is quite different to the received view, and for simple reasons, too. The article was checked today by the philosopher Martin Cohen. I'll be interested in the comments.
