some extended comments about formalization using classical logics
The Soviet school of semiotics developed computer systems that allowed changes to underlying defintions such as "is-a" as a means to keep up with a natural system undergoing changes. The paper by Gangemi et al on Inflammation Ontology Design Patterns:
may be seen to advocate something similar. (perhaps the authors, Catenacci or Gangemi, will make a communication on this).
To the focus of this working group, I ask:
If there is a percieved need to propogate a change in how subsumption (subclassOf relation) is to be treated (starting at a particular moment), how might this be possible (in DOLCE) or how does DOLCE treat deep changes to the ontology of relationships, or the notion of association?
My point has been that in biology there are often shifts in how a scientist, or other stakeholder, needs to regard the same thing (which just before had a different regard/virewpoint). If this need is recognized and addressed by standards and working groups, then we will build ontological models that have fidality to situations.
If not, then the models themselves may be the cause of damage somewhere.
