Description
Summary:This article outlines a new model of general ontology that draws significantly on the results of contemporary philosophy and cognitive science. It combines ideas from Gärdenfors's Conceptual Spaces Model and Edmund Husserl's philosophical insights concerning ontology and dependency. We put forth a possible architecture for general ontologies based on a "horizontal" (dependency-based) and a "vertical" (abstraction-based) arrangement of the concepts in the ontology.
