Abstract concepts are formed through slow cerebral maturation and the manipulation of sensitive objects. Little by little, the child acquires complex mathematical notions, e.g. learning to recognize the same quantity of liquid in two very different-shaped containers. Concepts such as "infinity", "unity" or "justice" have been acquired through a long series of apprenticeships, but it's no use believing that God put them in us. Cf. Jean Piaget
