Formal Concept Analysis as Mathematical Theory of Concepts and Concept Hierarchies

  title={Formal Concept Analysis as Mathematical Theory of Concepts and Concept Hierarchies},
  author={Rudolf Wille},
  booktitle={Formal Concept Analysis},
Formal Concept Analysis has been originally developed as a subfield of Applied Mathematics based on the mathematization of concept and concept hierarchy. Only after more than a decade of development, the connections to the philosophical logic of human thought became clearer and even later the connections to Piaget’s cognitive structuralism which Thomas Bernhard Seiler convincingly elaborated to a comprehensive theory of concepts in his recent book [Se01]. It is the main concern of this paper to… CONTINUE READING
