Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Analogical models are a method of representing a phenomenon of the world, often called the 'target system' by another, more understandable or analysable system. They are also called dynamical analogies. Analogizing is the process of representing information about a particular subject (the analogue or source system) by another particular subject (the target system). A simple type of analogy is one that is based on shared properties (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Analogical models, also called "analog" or "analogue" models, therefore seek the analog systems that share properties with the target system as a means of representing the world.show more
