We also compare the conceptual space approach to Moulines’s typology of intertheoretical relations in the structuralist tradition. Unlike structuralist reconstructions, those based on conceptual spaces yield a natural way of modeling the changes of a conceptual framework, including noncumulative changes, by tracing the changes to the dimensions that reconstitute a conceptual framework. As a consequence, the incommensurability of empirical theories need not be viewed as a matter of conceptual representation.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Gärdenfors, Peter</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Gärdenfors, Peter</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
