Sample text

The basic condition to belong to a class is to possess all properties associated with the class (Lakoff 1987). Since Aristotelian times until the beginning of the last century, categories were thought of as abstractions to which one could relate entities. Those entities either belonged or did not belong to a given category, depending on the number of properties that a pair entity-class shared. The set of all properties was sufficient to define any class. In the beginning of the last century, the Viennese philosopher Wittgenstein contested the classical vision of categorization.

They recently received considerable attention, boosted by the emergence of the Semantic Web. This new breed of ontology description languages is sometimes called lightweight ontology languages, Web ontology languages, or markup ontology languages. The layered model for the Semantic Web (see Fig. 9) puts the relationship among ontology description languages, RDF and RDF Schema, and XML in a better perspective. The bottom layer offers character encoding (Unicode) and referencing (URI) mechanisms.

1 Introduction Description logic denotes a family of knowledge representation formalisms that model the application domain by defining the relevant concepts of the domain and then using these concepts to specify properties of objects and individuals occurring in the domain (Baader and Nutt 2003). As the name implies, research on description logic emphasizes a careful formalization of the notions involved, and a preoccupation with precisely defined reasoning techniques. Note that we prefer the singular form, description logic, rather than the plural form, description logics, in spite of the fact that we are talking about a family of formalisms.
