analogy*nal"o*gy (&?;), n.; pl. analogies (&?;). [l. analogia, gr. &?;, fr. &?;: cf. f. analogie. see analogous.] 1. a resemblance of relations; an agreement or likeness between things in some circumstances or effects, when the things are otherwise entirely different. thus, learning enlightens the mind, because it is to the mind what light is to the eye, enabling it to discover things before hidden.note: followed by between, to, or with; as, there is an analogy between these objects, or one thing has an analogy to or with another.note: analogy is very commonly used to denote similarity or essential resemblance; but its specific meaning is a similarity of relations, and in this consists the difference between the argument from example and that from analogy. in the former, we argue from the mere similarity of two things; in the latter, from the similarity of their relations. --karslake. 2. (biol.) a relation or correspondence in function, between organs or parts which are decidedly different. 3. (geom.) proportion; equality of ratios. 4. (gram.) conformity of words to the genius, structure, or general rules of a language; similarity of origin, inflection, or principle of pronunciation, and the like, as opposed to anomaly.

(n.) similarity; correlation; parallelism the teacher used an analogy to describe the similarities between the two books. comparing the newly discovered virus with one found long ago, the scientist made an analogy between the two organisms.

Analogy is both the cognitive process of transferring information from a particular subject (the analogue or source) to another particular subject (the target), and a linguistic expression corresponding to such a process. In a narrower sense, analogy is an inference or an argument from a particular to another particular, as opposed to deduction, induction, and abduction, where at least one of the premises or the conclusion is general. the word analogy can also refer to the relation between the source and the target themselves, which is often, though not necessarily, a similarity, as in the biological notion of analogy. analogy plays a significant role in problem solving, decision making, perception, memory, creativity, emotion, explanation and communication. It lies behind basic tasks such as the identification of places, objects and people, for example, in face perception and facial recognition systems. It has been argued that analogy is "the core of cognition" (Hofstadter in Gentner et al. 2001). specific analogical language comprises exemplification, comparisons, metaphors, similes, allegories, and parables, but not metonymy. phrases like and so on, and the like, as if, and the very word like also rely on an analogical understanding by the receiver of a message including them. analogy is important not only in ordinary language and common sense, where proverbs and idioms give many examples of its application, but also in science, philosophy and the humanities. the concepts of association, comparison,  correspondence, mathematical and morphological homology, homomorphism, iconicity, isomorphism, metaphor, resemblance, and similarity are closely related to analogy. In cognitive linguistics, the notion of conceptual metaphor may be equivalent to that of analogy.

A systematic comparison between structures that uses properties of and relations between objects of a source structure to infer properties of and relations between objects of a target structure. < References> Paul Thagard

A similarity due to convergent evolution (common function) but not inheritance from a common ancestor (bat's wings and bird's wings). see also homology.

(1) correspondence in some respects, especially in function or position, between things otherwise dissimilar. (2) a form of logical inference, or an instance of it, based on the assumption that if two things are known to be alike in some respects, then they must be alike in other respects. likeness or similarities in structure or function but not in material existence. To argue by analogy is to infer from the fact that two SYSTEMs that correspond in some respect must also correspond in other respects as yet unexamined. although the form of reasoning is appealing and has given rise to numerous inventions, it is particularly liable to yield wrong conclusions. In the theory of MODELs, an analogy between two systems is explained by one simpler system that models both but by different HOMOMORPHISMs. (Krippendorff )
