Concept Formation and Abstraction.
Lunzer, Eric A.
Educational Review, v31 n2 p111-21 Jun 1979
This paper examines the nature of concepts and conceptual processes and the manner of their formation. It argues that a process of successive abstraction and systematization is central to the evolution of conceptual structures. Classificatory processes are discussed and three levels of abstraction outlined. (Author/SJL)
