Title
Understanding the powerful grouping sense through a unifying classification theory
Source
Knowledge organization. 21(1994) no.3, S126-131
Year
1994
Abstract
A unifying theory has been developed that draws together a compatible set of methods for classification, and shows why others should be rejected. The methods reveal polythetic groups and sequences, and evaluate the quality and the best identifying characters for each group. The theory defines the rules for the fuzzy uses of 40 interacting options for group studies in a new 12.000 line FORTRAN program called Uniter, available from the author. The theory and the program's options help to show the nature of the achievements and failures of humanity's powerful grouping sense. This approach offers useful understandings in an extremely wide range of fields, examples of which are given. Both research and teaching should take account of this development
