Winnicott in his talk to teachers of mathematics at a London teacher training college about the integrative factors that go to make up a sense of the self as a unit, a ‘me’. Winnicott plays on the Latin ‘Sum’ for ‘I am’ and as a subject of mathematics and elaborates on the development of the wholeness of self, the sum of the self, as well as its numerical meaning.
