1987). For example, the following premises contain part-whole (PW) and spatial inclusion (SP) relations. The wheel is part of the bike. The bike is in the garage. PW SP < inclusion> The relations in both premises involve the element of < inclusion> and so a valid conclusion must include this element and nothing more. The wheel is in the garage. SP < inclusion> The element of < connection> occurs in only one of the premises and so a conclusion that includes this element is not valid (marked with an asterisk).

Each family contained a group of relations that shared common family elements but differed on some specific elements. The taxonomy is described in Chapter 3. On the basis of the taxonomy, Ross et al. created three types of items that differed in the similarity of the key and alternative relations to the stem. In homogeneous items, the key was exactly the same relation as the stem and the alternatives came from the same family. Both the key and the alternatives were thus similar to the stem. In heterogeneous items, the alternatives came from different families than the stem and were thus less similar to the stem than in the homogeneous items.

Early work in this tradition used simple, unstructured feature representations that were able to account for analogies based on overlapping attributes. Rumelhart and Abrahamson's (1973) model is representative of this type of account. More recent models have used propositions expressed in predicate calculus to represent more complex analogies based on structural and causal relations. Gentner (1983) has examined the use of analogy for clarification. Holyoak (Gick & Holyoak, 1983; Holyoak & Thagard, 1989) has studied the use of analogy in problem solving.
