Title: Knowledge Profiling: The Basis for Knowledge Organization
Author(s): Thellefsen, Torkild
Subject(s): Philosophy of information Library science --Philosophy Information science --Philosophy
Abstract: How are we able to construct truly realistic representations of knowledge organizations (KOs)? The paper introduces and defines the knowledge profile as a method to investigate the epistemological basis of any KO to outline the consequences this basis has upon its research object. The knowledge profile is inspired by C. S. Peirce’s doctrine of pragmaticism, and it further reflects the relevance of pragmaticism in the context of KO.
