    Metaphor is an essential part of scientific reasoning. 1 The scientists that rely on metaphor, however, are not necessarily aware of its implicit influence, making it easy for the correspondences implied by a metaphor to be taken for granted, affecting scientific practice. In “Race and Gender: The Role of Analogy in Science,” historian Nancy Leys Stepan’s discussion of nineteenth century Author: Andrea Sullivan-Clarke. 10 Analogy Examples Like any other literary sample device, Analogy is used in enhancing the meaning of a composition and is also used in helping the readers in creating a visual image in their minds as well as relationships goals and connections when they would read something difficult or sensitive by comparing one thing to the other.

    The design analogy is often hard to make, though, and if this is not done carefully the potentially useful analogy degenerates to being little more than a metaphor. This happens when the authors can be suspected of just taking a few aspects of design that seem comparable to the field in question and draw far-reaching conclusions about ‘the Cited by: 9.

It discusses definitions for the term “analogy” and presents a number of experimental case studies involving analogy. In the 20th century, American researchers Walter Pitts and Warren McCulloch proposed the first mathematical model of a neural network.

Biology and technology hybridized, and the brain became a computer. Throughout the book, Cobb stresses the productive but also pernicious role of metaphors in how we conceive of the brain.

The second part addresses the role of analogy in a wide range of cognitive tasks, such as forming complex cognitive structures, conveying emotion, making decisions, and solving problems. The third part looks at the development of analogy in children and the possible use of analogy in nonhuman primates.

Analogy plays a significant role in problem solving, as well as decision making, argumentation, perception, generalization, memory, creativity, invention, prediction, emotion, explanation, conceptualization and lies behind basic tasks such as the identification of places, objects and people, for example, in face perception and facial recognition systems.

Whether we call it a metaphor, an analogy, a model, or simply an image, what is important here is the function of whatever it is that plays this role in our speaking, learning, and thinking. (8) There is substantial historical disagreement about the legitimate role of models in scientific reasoning, explanation, and prediction.

For example: you may recognize that many Greek and Shakespearean tragedies have a similar structure: a phase of increasing conflict between opposed sides or characters, a major confrontation between the opposed characters, and a phase in which.
