Introduction

Ontologies

This is what makes [ontologies] fundamentally different from taxonomies. While [they] fulfil two of the conditions of taxonomy (connecting relating things and semantic expression), they do not fulfil the third, which is to map the structure of the domain in a way that is easy to grasp and navigate.

Ontologies

Ontologies, in fact, pride themselves on their precision, and their impenetrability to humans.
