Graphs and Lattices as Conceptual Representation Formats. An Exploratory Exercise with Five Specializations of Mendelian Genetics

Mario Casanueva, Diego Méndez

Resumen


A graphical representation of the model-theoretic structure of explanation is used to reconstruct five distinct specializations of Mendelian genetics. Structural variations between the five models are highlighted and used to establish an inter-model variation sequence. Furthermore, the authors explore a geometrical format for the representation of thematic domains, which may reveal important tendencies of conceptual variation.
