The essays collected in this book deal with a) general ontology basically in two meanings: as a philosophical discipline that studies “being”, that is as a part of metaphysics, and as a theory that deals with types of entities, specifically those types of abstract entities that are allowed in a language (ontology as specification of a conceptualization), and b) formal ontology both as a “categorial ontology” and as a formalized discipline that represents an “ontological” part of the varied world of formal disciplines. This collection introduces the work of researchers from Europe, Middle-East, United States, Canada and Australia. Papers range across many topics of contemporary inquiry in ontology: foundations of ontology, primary relations (identity and identification), mereology, ontology of physical entities, trope ontology, modality and ontological imports of logic and theory of truth.

Abstract

The essays collected in this book deal with a) general ontology basically in two meanings: as a philosophical discipline that studies “being”, that is as a part of metaphysics, and as a theory that deals with types of entities, specifically those types of abstract entities that are allowed in a language (ontology as specification of a conceptualization), and b) formal ontology both as a “categorial ontology” and as a formalized discipline that represents an “ontological” part of the varied world of formal disciplines. This collection introduces the work of researchers from Europe, Middle-East, United States, Canada and Australia. Papers range across many topics of contemporary inquiry in ontology: foundations of ontology, primary relations (identity and identification), mereology, ontology of physical entities, trope ontology, modality and ontological imports of logic and theory of truth.
