Hengwei L. & Da D. (2017) A Note on Introducing Formal Ontology to Constructivists. Constructivist Foundations 12(3): 302–303. Fulltext at
Open peer commentary on the article “Coordination Produces Cognitive Niches, not just Experiences: A Semi-Formal Constructivist Ontology Based on von Foerster” by Konrad Werner. Upshot: Werner’s argument that coordination produces cognitive niches has proceeded largely by means of some sort of cognitive connections. Perhaps formal ontology is useful to clarify a cluster of formal-ontological notions, including parts, connections, and locations. Yet constructivists should be careful with formal ontology. At any rate, formal ontology is not just about the use of predicate expressions.
