Hi, user2 and folks, we (Ontolog Board of Trustees) did allow the initial posting by me, back a few whiles ago, announcing this discount. But we did not authorize
a direct posting by MIT Press. Did you receive this from them on the Ontolog list? Looks like it, though I only received it directly from MIT Press.
Did others on Ontolog receive this from Ontolog Forum? I ask because the distribution list seems to be down (I just sent an email about an hour or so ago).
Thanks and apologies for any spam,

I resent the use of this list to spam for Barry Smith’s latest book.

The MIT Press is pleased to announce the release of Building Ontologies with Basic Formal Ontology, a comprehensive guide to applied
ontology and BFO by Robert Arp, Barry Smith and Andrew D. Spear.
Paperback | $30.00 Short | £20.95 | ISBN: 9780262527811 | 248 pp. | 7 x 9 in | 32 b&w illus.
Ebook | $21.00 Short | ISBN: 9780262329576 | 248 pp. | 7 x 9 in | 32 b&w illus.
This important new work on applied ontology covers theoretical components, design practices, and practical applications, providing a comprehensive introduction to the field of applied
ontology that is of particular relevance to biomedicine. Distinguishing between different kinds of ontologies and taxonomies, the book also presents the core features of the Basic Formal Ontology (BFO), now used by over one hundred ontology projects around
the world, and offers examples of domain ontologies that utilize BFO. Drawing on concepts not only from computer and information science but also from linguistics, logic, and philosophy, Building Ontologies is
a long-overdue guide to the theoretical foundations and practical principles of using ontologies to categorize scientific knowledge.
In celebration of this release, The MIT Press is pleased to extend a discount on this title to researchers interested in applied ontologies and integrating them into their own work.
Enter discount code MONTOLOGY30 when prompted at checkout on The
MIT Press website to receive 30% off your purchase. (Please note that while this code can only be used when purchasing this title directly from our website, it can be used more than once and is applicable
to both the print and ebook editions. Valid until 10/31/15.)
Best wishes and happy reading from us here at The MIT Press!
