Rethinking Conceptual Structures and their Expression - Part 1 An Essay about Concept Formation and Symbology

Abstract: Meaningful communication between people, organizations and information processing systems - using any form of symbolic expression - requires the unambiguous and precise definition of terms. And although symbolic arguments can be expressed with formal rigour, it is still unclear what symbols or terms mean for individual people, organisations or information processing systems. Even formal and official standards use subjective and imprecise definitions of terms. This paper detaches conceptual structures from symbols, analyses their cognitive origin, and proposes an approach that may support a more precise and view independent expression of knowledge.
