Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: De Gruyter | An Introduction | This series presents monographs and collected volumes on topics of metaphysics and ontology. Its main focus is on systematic rather than historical studies. There are no restrictions on the philosophical views defended, on the methods used, and on the metaphysical questions addressed. Contributions are invited on topics such as properties, relations, things, events, truth, space, time, causation, free will, and others. | Ontology is the philosophical discipline which aims to understand how things in the world are divided into categories and how these categories are related together. This is exactly what information scientists aim for in creating structured, automated representations, called 'ontologies,' for managing information in fields such as science, government, industry, and healthcare. Currently, these systems are designed in a variety of different ways, so they cannot share data with one another. They are often idiosyncratically structured, accessible only to those who created them, and unable to serve as inputs for automated reasoning. This volume shows, in a non-technical way and using examples from medicine and biology, how the rigorous application of theories and insights from philosophical ontology can improve the ontologies upon which information management depends. | Introduction: What is Ontology for?Katherine MunnAcknowledgments1.
