This section addresses the nature of concepts and conceptual change. As such, this section is very important to the larger endeavor undertaken in this book, which is to work toward a convergence in research on conceptual change. As a microcosm of the larger volume, the chapters here illustrate some of the tensions to be negotiated, as well as the prospects for synthesis.
