Representation of similarities – a psychometric but not an explanatory concept for categorization

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (4):475-476 (1998)

The representation of similarities is a viable concept for a cognitive extension of visual psychophysics to the recognition of shapes, bringing issues such as similarity and categorization back into that field. However, as a framework it appears too general to place constraints on a particular process model for categorization. In particular, a preference for Chorus-like schemes with respect to structure-oriented approaches is unwarranted.
