This paper reviewed various views of concept formation, and advocates that the famous five approaches to conceptual structure—classical, prototype, exemplar, schemata/scripts, and knowledge-based—construct different representation systems. They form obviously a bipolar continuum of logicality and of flexibility. Compared with the views based on similarity, the views based on explanation only use a new kind of similarity. This paper classifies conceptual representation into four categories—the representation based on rules, on cues, on exemplars, and on schemata — and describe their bipolar structure.
