Instantiated rules and abstract analogy: Not a continuum of similarity

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (1):17-17 (2005)

Abstract
We agree that treating rules and similarity as dichotomous opposites is unproductive. However, describing all categorization operations as a continuum of varied similarity process obscures a multidimensional contrast. We describe two processes, instantiated rules and abstract analogy, both of which have aspects of rules and similarity, and question whether they can be compared informatively as points on a continuum.
