Description
Philosophers and biologists have compared our world to various images, like a net, a map, a ladder, a chain, or a flourishing tree. These analogies have helped them to think about this world of nature, and have helped their readers to understand their theories. However, one image does not always mean one and the same theory. An image allows for different interpretations and lets the readers think of some new theories. And sometimes these new theories need new different images. In analogy, there are interactions between what is to be described and what is used to describe. This paper explores the interactions between the theories of nature which are called the chain of being and the images used to represent them, and investigates the functions of analogy in general.
