Figure 2

A visualization of the characteristics of the “subjects” category (from Figure 1 ) as stated in the DFSS (A’) and their translation into media and bioethics article-claims (B). This study category represented the largest total number of article-claims and its article-claims were distributed across the various classes. The figure shows how claims can represent the same characteristic category but fall into different proposition classes. This figure also demonstrates the range of qualitative differences possible in the translation of discrete categories of information.
