Abstract

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.
