Zones and tiers: a study of thematic structure, Volume 1
This study outlines a theory of thematic structure, which is a part of the human conceptual structure. The wellformedness of the therapeutic structure is defined by restrictive principles and not by rewriting rules as in earlier works. This change in the formal approach adds explanatory adequacy and reveals many new conceptual primitives and relations.
