Question 3a Ontology Value -     (1A45)

"A common set of terms and processing rules."     (1A46)

Question 3b Ontology Issues -     (1A47)

"Defining the level to which it is operational, i.e. whether it embraces     (1A48)

the rest or if it is embraced by it. Ontology is only one specific     (1A49)

point of view. Degree of Agreement evolves over time."     (1A50)

Question 3c Ontology Problems -     (1A51)

"Try to elucidate the divergence between the meaning of "ontology"     (1A52)

in the philosophical sense ("the science of being") which conveys     (1A53)

the notion of absolute and the computer-science sense     (1A54)

('an exhaustive conceptual schema') which tends to impose the     (1A55)

misleading view that there is no other way to conceptualize.     (1A56)

An ontology should be seen as a particular world view."     (1A57)

Question 3d Corresponding Solutions -     (1A58)

"Decompose in a common low level representation, and recompose     (1A59)

several views (=ontologies). This is equivalent to decompose     (1A60)

operations in assembly language, and recompose them according     (1A61)

to different high level languages."     (1A62)
