Abstract

Results of study of formation of quantitative concepts in the lower and higher monkey are presented. Various authors used different methods of study of this issue. It has been established that not only the higher primates, such as chimpanzees and orangutans, but also the lower ones—macaques, capuchins, squirrel monkeys—have the “mathematical capabilities.” The detailed study of formation of quantitative concepts in primates of different levels of phylogenesis allows disclosing mechanisms of formation of this function in human.
