Object-Oriented Ontology

An object-oriented ontology uses objects to connect things, mimicking human thinking in its connections of, for example, an object and its maker. They place objects at the center of their structure and connect pieces of information directly as attributes of those objects, as opposed to event-oriented ontologies.


  • The following example shows a book that is modelled as a central object, with its author and publication date as connected attributes.
