Scope note

  • This concept classifies concepts for use in categorizing and/ or systematizing aspects of our perceptible reality. These concept types express fundamental ways of viewing reality and are drawn from different conceptual contexts, each expressing a particular standpoint. They arise from the discussion and comparison of the formulation, definition and use of concepts in different disciplines. They are thus, among other things, meant to play a kind of mediating role between various disciplines and are proposed towards the end of establishing a common inter-disciplinary and inter-thematic conceptual framework.


  • Narrower term examples: “identity”,“social identity”,“gender identity”.
