We considered the analysis of a complex network as an iterative process of extracting meaningful information at multiple granularities from a complex system of interacting objects. We proposed a topology-based method to disclose a pyramid of abstractions from a complex network. It is a new knowledge representation that combined vertical and horizontal viewpoints for interpreting a complex network to different degrees of abstraction.
