A prominent high-level ontology is that proposed by Mario Bunge. While it has been extensively used for research in IS analysis and conceptual modelling, it has not been employed in the more formal settings of semantic web research. We claim that its specification in natural language is the key inhibitor to its wider use. Consequently, this paper offers a description of this ontology in open, standardized knowledge representation formats. The ontology is described both in UML and OWL in order… CONTINUE READING
