Abstract Title: Triangular Model of Concept Structure
Abstract: The triangular model of physical concept structure and its four developmental levels will be presented:
1. Primitive,
2. Empirical,
3. Symbolical,
4. Formal.
The model is built upon Vygotsky's theory and derived from a semantic modeling. The basic components of the model are: core C, meaning M, meaning layers M1, M2, M3, sense S and their relationships. This model also distinguishes the concept's meaning and sense like two disjunctive sets.
The triangular model of concept "force" on Aristotelian (empirical) and Newtonian (symbolical) cognitive level will be presented.
The Vygotian phases of concept formation will be presented by the triangular model.
