Long time lurker, first time poster, just a couple of thoughts re the discussions thus far.
First, @John I really enjoy your site and the papers you have posted. Thanks for making it all available online.
@Pat, I love the resource provided w/ the IKL guide (it clarified several issues I have with CL too) and have a few questions about it that i'll ask later.
Regarding the question at hand:
I have some questions / observations about the connection between FOL, the axioms one writes and the resultant models one develops using inference rules. Correct me if i'm wrong, but this is what I believe was termed as the 1 stage method; in contrast to what I gather John has been proposing as a two-stage method.
My question is thus (having an interest in (semi)-automated empirical ontology validation):
Given that any model constructed from FOL ostensibly represents reality, is not the one-stage method in effect a two-stage method? The main difference is that we have humans implicitly conducting the final stage (of seeing whether a particular model _corresponds to_ reality)?
Would not making explicit how models correlate to 'gestured' entities in some relevant 'reality' be what John is suggesting?
Am I missing something?
Thank you kindly,
