What Is Reification?

Reification is a simple cognitive process by which we convert abstract intellectual concepts into real, physical objects. In other words, when we think about something abstract, such as a number, we often visualize it as a real, physical object. For example, if we were to think about the number 2, we might imagine it as two apples sitting on a table.

Reification has a number of benefits, including helping us understand complex concepts and making complex ideas easier to remember. It can also help us to understand how the world works and to make forecasts.
