ON THE INTEGRATION OF KNOWLEDGE IN A PROPOSITIONAL LOGICAL LAYER

Sebastian Bab

Abstract

In general knowledge is complex which means that it is not an isolated entity, but a phenomenon which is coming (or can be derived) from different sources of knowledge. The position of the present paper is that it can be highly beneficial to study the integration of knowledge coming from different knowledge sources as an explicit propositional logical layer in knowledge engineering. Here the term of proposition is to be understood in the understanding of Frege as the inherent sense of a formal expression. We discuss a certain family of propositional logics – the so-called ƐT-logics – which allow for an explicit interpretation of formulas as propositions. We argue that the family of ƐT-logics-logics and their models offer a very expressive logical setting which is able to realize a certain scenario of the integration of knowledge from different knowledge sources.
