Following the Wikipedia page on Philosophy of Mathematics (linked from the article you cited) would lead you to the Embodied Mind theory, and further, to the canonical explication of this theory in George Lakoff's Where Mathematics Comes From.

For future reference: if an uncited claim in Wikipedia includes a link, follow the link-- the citation may be on the other side.
