Conceptual models are best thought of as design-tools – a way for designers to straighten out and simplify the design and match it to the users' task-domain, thereby making it clearer to users how they should think about the application.
There is philosophy, which is about Conceptual analysis — about the meaning of what we say — and there is all of this ... all of life.alfred jules ayer
Whole great chunks of written history are of little value to the psychohistorian, while other vast areas which have been much neglected by historians childhood history, content analysis of historical imagery, and so on suddenly expand from the periphery to the center of the psychohistorian's Conceptual world, simply because his or her own new questions require material nowhere to be found in history books.lloyd demause
In Conceptual art the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work?all planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctoryaffair. The idea becomes the machine that makes the art.Sol LeWitt
Not only were the minds of artists formed by the university; in the same mold were formed those of the art historians, the critics, the curators, and the collectors by whom their work was evaluated. With the rise of Conceptual art, the classroom announced its final triumph over the studio.Harold Rosenberg
The term architecture is used here to describe the attributes of a system as seen by the programmer, i.e., the Conceptual structure and functional behavior, as distinct from the organization of the data flow and controls, the logical design, and the physical implementation. i. Additional details concerning the architecture,fred brooks
The essence of a software entity is a construct of interlocking concepts: […] I believe the hard part of building software to be the specification, design, and testing of this Conceptual construct, not the labor of representing it and testing the fidelity of the representation.fred brooks
Our intellectual powers are rather geared to master static relations and that our powers to visualize processes evolving in time are relatively poorly developed. For that reason we should do (as wise programmers aware of our limitations) our utmost to shorten the Conceptual gap between the static program and the dynamic process, to make the correspondence between the program (spread out in text space) and the process (spread out in time) as trivial as possible.edsger w. dijkstra
I strongly reject any Conceptual scheme that places our options on a line, and holds that the only alternative to a pair of extreme positions lies somewhere between them. More fruitful perspectives often require that we step off the line to a site outside the dichotomy.stephen jay gould
Most impediments to scientific understanding are Conceptual locks, not factual lacks. Most difficult to dislodge are those biases that escape our scrutiny because they seem so obviously, even ineluctably, just. We know ourselves best and tend to view other creatures as mirrors of our own constitution and social arrangements. ( Aristotle , and nearly two millennia of successors, designated the large bee that leads the swarm as a king.)stephen jay gould
As I already explaned, I don't have any form. I'm a Conceptual metaphysical object.haruki murakami
Truth is a free creation of the human spirit, that never would exist at all if we did not generate it ourselves. The task of understanding is not to replicate in Conceptual form something that already exists, but rather to create a wholly new realm, that together with the world given to our senses constitutes the fullness of reality.rudolf steiner
'Pure experience' is the name I gave to the immediate flux of life which furnishes the material to our later reflection with its Conceptual categories.william james
I don't know if I'm making myself clear, but if I were to accept this business of Conceptual art I would have no reason to exist.
Scientists whose work has no clear, practical implications would want to make their decisions considering such things as: the relative worth of (1) more observations, (2) greater scope of his Conceptual model, (3) simplicity, (4) precision of language, (5) accuracy of the probability assignment.

We realize, however, that all scientific laws merely represent abstractions and idealizations expressing certain aspects of reality . Every science means a schematized picture of reality, in the sense that a certain Conceptual construct is unequivocally related to certain features of order in reality;
A Conceptual model is a model of the projected system that is independent of implementation details
The second problem [with using UML for the purposes of this book] is that the Unified Modeling Language concentrates on implementation modeling rather than Conceptual modeling.
A Conceptual model is what in the model theory is called a set of formulas making statements about the world.
A Conceptual model is a representation of the system expertise using this formalism. An internal model is derived from the Conceptual model and from a specification of the system transactions and the performance constraints.
A Conceptual model is a mental image of a system, its components, its interactions. It lays the foundation for more elaborate models, such as physical or numerical models. A Conceptual model provides a framework in which to think about the
The role of Conceptual modelling in information systems development during all these decades is seen as an approach for capturing fuzzy, ill-defined, informal "real-world" descriptions and user requirements, and then transforming them to formal, in some sense complete, and consistent Conceptual specifications.
Like a physical model, a Conceptual model is an artificial system. It is however, made up of Conceptual, and not physical components.
The first function of a Conceptual model is relating the research to the existing body of literature. With the help of a Conceptual model a researcher can indicate in what way he is looking at the phenomenon of his research.
Such dialectical relation of opposites in and by the proposition is rendered possible by the recognition of the subject as an historical agent whose identity constitutes itself in and against its historical practice, in and against its social reality. The discourse develops and states the conflict between the thing and its function, and this conflict finds linguistic expression in sentences which join contradictory predicates in a logical unit Conceptual counterpart of the objective reality. In contrast to all Orwellian language, the contradiction is demonstrated, made explicit, explained, and denounced.herbert marcuse
At the Conceptual level there are numerous definitions of curiosity which tend to encompass a broad range of characteristics. Boredom is one prerequisite or motivation for curiosity (exploration).
Perhaps the most concise summary of enlightenment would be: transcending dualism. … Dualism is the Conceptual division of the world into categories … human perception is by nature a dualistic phenomenon which makes the quest for enlightenment an uphill struggle, to say the least.
'Pure experience ' is the name I gave to the immediate flux of life which furnishes the material to our later reflection with its Conceptual categories.william james
