Individuals/objects/Gärdenfors: they can be accepted as points in the concept space. At these points, different properties (dimensions) can be assumed if the point is assumed to be a vector of coordinates for each dimension. At the same time, it is clear that no further properties can be localized from the dimension at the point: i.e. an object cannot be e.g. yellow and blue at the same time, but it can be large and warm at the same time.
Ontology/Vectors/Gärdenfors: but these vectors are only cognitive constructs.
Properties/Object/Individual: all properties are never represented at the same time. Therefore, we can use partial vectors.
Vector: representing objects as vectors in a conceptual space means that individuals are treated as a special case by categories where all regions of the domain are reduced to points.
Individual/categories: there are, however, aspects that distinguish objects (individuals) from categories._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
