Chapter 8. Perceptual/Conceptual References

Table of Contents

1. Conception
2. Naming

Between the perceptual domain and the conceptual domain are two primary relationships: conception and naming.

References to percepts are called concepts: the process by which these references are created is called conception (or conceptualization). Percepts can be created which in turn represent those concepts; these percepts are called symbols, and the process of creating these symbols is called naming.
