Blog:Contexts in Context
|Purpose||Blog articles and comments for the Ontology Summit 2018 topic: Contexts in Context|
Context is the property of an object and a non object that enables an agent to identify an object as a unique entity or something separate from the non object. Notice that words come in pairs, it is contrast that perception is based on, and a dual nature of concepts rules the mind. That enables comparison, the building block of learning, acquiring practical knowledge and abstract thinking. I interpret the world in terms of a lean upper ontology, the first three concepts of which must be familiar from upper ontology.
Context is an abstract noun. As an abstract noun it is either an object, or a property or a relation.
