Diagrams have been used for over a millennium to communicate rich meaning for diverse purposes. Three major and persistent problems concerning our understanding of diagrams have been identified and must be addressed: 1. The variety of diagram types 2. Handling changes while retaining well formedness 3. Semantically mixed diagrams. A variety of both scientific and philosophical approaches to understanding diagrams is examined, and all are found unable to meet these challenges in full.
