Open peer commentary on the article “Problematizing: The Lived Journey of a Group of Students Doing Mathematics” by Robyn Gandell & Jean-François Maheux. Abstract: Describing group problematizing involves attending all-at-once to both individual and group thinking, without forgetting that what is being described is an ephemeral doing. I question whether Ingold’s metaphors of pathways and meshworks help or hinder our attending to these points and I offer an alternative way of describing group problematizing.
