The current definitions don't seem to consider all the present uses of the word typology. Northrup Frye in the Great Code, p.83, and elsewhere, pps. 78-138, uses it in an evolutionary sense, as, when referencing Nietzsche's Superman he says, ..."anogher of the diachronic conceptions suggested by evolution. But because of his preference for the synchronic deity Dionysus, Nietzsche was compelled to incorporate his Superman into a cyclical framework..."., p. 86. —This comment was unsigned.

That quotation doesn't seem to use the word typology anywhere. :/ - -sche (discuss) 21:57, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
