The notion of distal similarity is ill defined
UNSPECIFIED (1998) The notion of distal similarity is ill defined. BEHAVIORAL AND BRAIN SCIENCES, 21 (4). 474-+. ISSN 0140-525XFull text not available from this repository.
We argue that the notion of distal similarity on which Edelman's reconstruction of the process of perception and the nature of representation rests is ill defined. As a consequence, the mapping between world and description that is supposedly at stake is, in fact, a mapping between two different descriptions or "representations.".
