    From metaphors to equations: How can we find the good ones?Gottfried Mayer-Kress - 2000 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (3):409-410.
    Among the metaphors used in the target article are “musical instruments,” “water waves,” and other types of mechanical oscillators. The corresponding equations have inertial properties and lead to standing waves that depend on boundary conditions. Other, physiologically relevant quantities like refractory times are not contained in the mechanical oscillator model but occur naturally, for instance, in biological forest fire metaphors.

    Remarks on whale cultures from a complex systems perspective.Gottfried Mayer-Kress & Mason A. Porter - 2001 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 24 (2):344-344.
    The target article provides stimulating evidence for culture in cetaceans but does not provide a coherent theoretical framework. We argue that a complex, adaptive systems approach not only can provide such a framework but also can contribute advanced data analysis and simulation methods. For humpback whale songs, we suggest the framework of to model the observed spatio-temporal dynamics.
