This article has some worthwhile reading on "concept maps".
The Theory Underlying Concept Maps and How to Construct Them
Article discusses the characteristics of concept maps, their epistemological
foundations and offers instructions for creating them. By Joseph D. Novak.
Novak has been studying the psychology of learning and concept formation for
decades. I think he's worth listening to.
I mentioned 'cognitive maps' in reference to Sai's notion of 'non-linear
full-2d writing systems'. This is similar in form and structure. It also
offers free downloadable and sharable software (CMap) which I intend to try
out - just as soon as the registration-&-download process works. I haven't
yet found the software I mentioned, though, which I was using 2 or 3 years
ago quite happily. (O tempora! O disk space!)
