Schiffer’s example here is the pope’s throne, which in addition to indicating the occupant’s social status also symbolises authority in general, which is why we sometimes speak metonymously of the power or authority of the throne. Schiffer’s proposal classifies functions in terms of a concrete aspect of their content, namely, what kind of purpose they embody. The classification of functions in terms of the distinction between proper function and system function is not intended to replace Schiffer’s classification, or indeed any other content-based classification.
Lateral cycling occurs when an object is transferred, without change in form or use, from one user to another. … For example, a sofa is sold to a new owner who uses it as a sofa. Conservatory processes or collecting behaviour bring about a change in the use (but not the form) of an object such that preservation is intended. ) American individuals as well as public and private institutions collect everything from Mickey Mouse memorabilia to light bulbs. (Schiffer et al. 1981: 68) There are three distinct categories of reuse here (conservation being only a special case of secondary use), and clearly one of the most important factors marking off one from another is the fate of the function of the reused item.
To summarise, then: Wright’s conception of function turns out to be unstable because it assumes the history explaining how a thing got there and that the current capacity or disposition of that thing will correspond. But they do not always do so. In the case of malfunction, the thing does not have the capacity or disposition expected on the basis of the history of things of that type. In the cases noticed by Cummins, the thing has a different capacity or disposition than what would be expected on the basis of such a history.
