Producción científica: Capítulo del libro/informe/acta de congresoCapítulorevisión exhaustiva


This chapter proposes that function is a complex relational concept that draws on many conceptual domains for its content. According to the HIPE theory, these domains include History, Intentional perspective, the Physical environment, and Event sequences. The function of a particular entity does not have a single sense. Instead many different senses can be constructed that depend on the conceptualizer's current goal, setting, and personal history. On a given occasion, relevant knowledge is assembled across conceptual domains to construct a relevant sense, represented as a mental simulation and structured by a causal chain.
