Interfaces entre ontologias e conceitos seminais da ciência da informação: em busca de avanços na organização do conhecimento [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Since the 1990s, the term “ontology” has often appeared in the literature of different fields of research, including Information Science. Ontologies are usually associated with technology, but an approach named Applied Ontology has been receiving more and more attention. This approach focuses on philosophical aspects of ontologies, rather than on computational aspects, in order to propose methods for knowledge organization. This paper is based on proposals of Applied Ontology and aims to contribute to the advancement of discussions about the usefulness of ontologies in the scope of Knowledge Organization. In order to reach our goals, we first characterize ontologies according to their level of generality; then we discuss their connections to seminal concepts of Information Science. We conclude that, in the scope of the studies on ontologies, it is possible to characterize such seminal concepts and even define them in a complementary way. As our final contribution, we propose a level-oriented view of reality that helps one in the understanding of relations among the different notions mentioned throughout this paper, which belong to different fields of research. We also conclude that ontologies, as instruments per se, are able to represent just a fragment of the full range of possibilities approached within Information Science.
