Can we look at a psychologist's or a sociologist's results and make them useful? Can we interpret them in terms of our background as mathematicians? For instance, when a psychologist and a mathematics educator look at a contingency table, they probably see two different sides of the same coin; the questions they ask are completely different. ' A model of implication is needed to answer this question, whereas the psychologist may need only correlation. Thus, we can borrow results from another field when we already have a question to which this result gives a (partial) answer.

In mathematics, there is hardly any distinction between objects and relationships: relationships can become objects at the next higher level: number, function, operator, functor. We (mentally) manipulate manipulations on lower level objects. Such a recursive multilayered structure is not encountered in other topics. We also use some theoretical frameworks that are specifically mathematical, such as the process-object distinction. Because our frameworks are specific, even if we use general terms, they describe results specific to mathematics education.

A. Sierpinska wrote the final text. 2. A revised version of Sfard's paper is in Part VI. 3. A revised version of Leder's paper is in Part III. 4. A revised version of the Boero and Szendrei paper is in Part III. 5. This proposal was subsequently sent to the ICMI Executive Committee, and an ad hoc committee, chaired by Nicolas Balacheff, was appointed to address it. 6. A revised version of Kieran's paper is in Part III. 7. A revised version of the Arzarello paper, written with Mariolina Bartolini-Bussi, is in Part IV.
