Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Generalization: a generalization is the extension of a statement (an attribution of properties) that applies to a domain D of objects to an object domain E that is larger than D and contains D. Time points may also belong to the subject domain. A property which fully applies to the objects of an object domain may be partially applicable to the objects of a larger domain. See also validity, general invalidity, general, predication, methods.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.

2. Ähnlichkeitsrelationen zwischen Kategorien
3. Nach Rosch (1975, 1978) enthalten übergeordnete Kategorien viel weniger gemeinsame Attribute (Bereiche) als grundlegende Kategorien.
