As in the previous chapters, we will follow the narrative of algebra to see how mathematical meaning emerges from small spatial stories and conceptual blending. This time we will focus on the narrative of the group theory considered to be one of the most beautiful areas of algebra (especially for the finite groups). This is how the chapter on group theory begins in Herstein’s handbook:
