A problematic stance pervading biological theory consists of establishing homological relations using behavioral and ultimately functional criteria. The communicative approach discussed in the previous chapter is but a particular instance of this contentious bearing. This chapter carefully elaborates the argument that homologies can only be based on structural grounds and the chapter also presents the idea that these structural homologies can be established at several hierarchical levels of non-conflicting structural analysis.

Keywords:   behaviorism, homology concepts, behavioral homology, historical homology, ahistorical homology, archetypes
