|Abstract||The purpose of this paper is to present two kinds of analogical representational change, both occurring early in the analogy-making process, and then, using these two kinds of change, to present a model unifying one sort of analogy-making and categorization. The proposed uni- ﬁcation rests on three key claims: (1) a certain type of rapid representational abstraction is crucial to making the relevant analogies (this is the ﬁrst kind of representational change; a computer model is presented that demonstrates this kind of abstraction), (2) rapid abstractions are induced by retrieval across large psychological distances, and (3) both categorizations and analogies supply understandings of perceptual input via construing, which is a proposed type of categorization (this is the second kind of representational change). It is construing that ﬁnalizes the uniﬁcation.|
