Zen Mind Part 2: Multiple Inheritance v Multiple Classification

If you come from an Object Oriented background, in particular one that supports multiple inheritance, you might find an apparent similarity between multiple inheritance in OO and having a class be subsumed by two others. However, if you try this out, you’ll realize you’re not getting what you’re expecting. This is because the semantics are different.

If one parent had the “foo()” method and the other parent had the “bar()” method, the child now has both. The child has all of the attributes, and all of the behaviors of both parents. The child is essentially the union of the behaviors of the two parents. Semantics is not dealing with behavior, it’s dealing with typing, membership and classification.
