There are three basic steps to the problem of concept formulation:
- Select one know instance of the concept. Call this the concept
- Examine definitions of other known instance of the concept.
Generalise the definition to include them.
- Examine descriptions of near misses. Restrict the definition
to exclude these.
Both steps 2 and 3 rely on comparison and both similarities and differences
need to be identified.
