The Ontological Atom of Behavior
University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
In his book Data and Reality, William Kent draws attention to limiting assumptions. For practicing conceptual information modeling, however, he doesn't remove such constraints. This ontology is interpreted in terms of Russell's logical atomism with object as the core concept, i.e., as the ontological atom. The limits Kent identifies are surpassed through a shift of ontological atom from object to behavior. Logical atomism thus transformed is characteristic of subjective situationism.
