Dear Friends of Historia Matematica,
I have been reading your interesting discussion about counting from
zero. I wish to add a note to this matter: native indians from Mexico and
Andean regions counts also from zero. You may read the whole discussion on
my article EL CURIOSO CONCEPTO DE "CERO CONCRETO" MESOAMERICANO Y ANDINO Y
LA LOGICA DE LOS DIOSES NUMEROS INCAS: UNA NOTA on Especulo 27, Revista de
la Universidad Complutense, Madrid,
http://www.ucm.es/info/especulo/numero27/cero.html
