Formal ontology by Roberto Poli( Book )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Formal ontology combines two ideas, one originating with Husserl, the other with Frege: that of ontology of the formal aspects of all objects, irrespective of their particular nature, and ontology pursued by employing the tools of modern formal disciplines, notably logic and semantics. These two traditions have converged in recent years and this is the first collection to encompass them as a whole in a single volume. It assembles essays from authors around the world already widely known for their work in formal ontology, and illustrates that through the application of formal methods the ancient discipline of ontology may be put on a firm methodological basis. The essays not only illuminate the nature of ontology and its relation to other areas, in language, logic and everyday life, but also demonstrate that common issues from the analytical and phenomenological traditions may be discussed without ideological barriers

The philosophy of Nicolai Hartmann by Nicolai Hartmann Society( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicolai Hartmann was one of the most original twentieth century German philosophers. Yet, he did not compromise clarity and rigor for proficiency and originality. Brought up as a neo-Kantian, he became one of the most important critics of German idealism and one of the most resolute proponents of ontological realism. He developed what he called the "New Ontology," which lies at the core of a systematic opus branching out in all of the main areas of philosophy. He proposed innovative and promising solutions to old and new problems in the various areas of philosophy. His work had a major influen
Causality and motivation by Roberto Poli( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The belief is widely held that the physical world is causally-driven. The world is one because a tangled web of causally-driven processes keeps it together. However, both the psychological and the social worlds cannot be articulated in causal terms only. Hereby, "motivation" is used as the most general term referring to whatever keeps (synchronically) together and provides (diachronic) reasons explaining the behavior of psychological and social systems. In order to systematically address these problems, a categorical framework is needed for understanding the various types of realities populati
Theory and applications of ontology by Roberto Poli( Book )

20 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ontology was once understood to be the philosophical inquiry into the structure of reality: the analysis and categorization of 'what there is'. Recently, however, a field called 'ontology' has become part of the rapidly growing research industry in information technology. The two fields have more in common than just their name. "Theory and Applications of Ontology" is a two-volume anthology that aims to further an informed discussion about the relationship between ontology in philosophy and ontology in information technology. It fills an important lacuna in cutting-edge research on o
