‘Formal Ontology’ is a term of art of Husserlian origins. It does not refer to ontology conducted with formal methods (although it could involve formal methods). Rather, it refers to the study of ontological form: the structures and relations in which ontological elements (such as objects) stand. More generally, ontology understood in this fashion involves an examination of the categorical structure of reality – a task which goes back to Aristotle’s Categories. This workshop brings together philosophers working on formal ontology and metaphysics of science. The goal is to find new ways to apply work on ontological categories and formal ontological relations to case studies from the metaphysics of science.
