Abstract: A model is proposed that elegantly unifies the traditional exemplar and prototype models. These two models are extreme cases of the proposed varying abstraction model. The unifying model further makes room for many new intermediate pseudo-exemplar models. A preliminary analysis using Medin and Schaffer's (1978) 5-4 structure pointed to such an intermediate model that outperformed the prototype and exemplar models.
