The notion of distal similarity is ill defined

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (4):474-475 (1998)
Abstract
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.”.
