Pathetic fallacy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Some of what I think about I deal with by reifying, because I don't know of another way of dealing with it.

Is memetics an exercise in reification, and would that necessarily be a bad thing?

As I understand the term, to reify is simply to treat an abstract as real. I'm not convinced that in so doing I'm necessarily committing a logical fallacy.

Am I?

If so, I always stand for correction.
