Three Questions Concerning the Foundation of Multi-perspective Classification
AbstractThis paper contributes to the discussion of the purposes and functions of multi-perspective classification by raising foundational questions. Starting from the motivations of developing multi-perspective classification, the author discusses questions concerning the accommodation of different perspectives. The discussion leads to the question “what is multi-perspective classification?” and envisions a possible amelioration. Through discussing the three questions concerning the foundation of multi-perspective classification, the goal is to identify challenges and thoughts for developing multi-perspective classification before focusing on specific implementations.
