- Some Good Books
- "Women, Fire and Dangerous Things", G. Lakoff, 1987 http://www.amazon.com/Women-Dangerous-Things-George-Lakoff/dp/0226468046 Goes into detail on why rigid categories fail when they meet the real world, and why there is no "perfect ontology".
- "The Search for the Perfect Language", U. Eco, 1993 http://www.amazon.com/Search-Perfect-Language-Making-Europe/dp/0631205101 A history of attempts at "Philosophical Languages" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophical_language). Think of it as a cautionary tale for the Semantic Web.
- "Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist", http://www.amazon.com/Semantic-Web-Working-Ontologist-Effective/dp/0123735564 I've only read one chapter and skimmed some others, but I like it so far.
