In philosophy, the term formal ontology is used to refer to an ontology defined by axioms in a formal language with the goal to provide an unbiased (domain- and application-independent) view on reality, which can help the modeler of domain- or application-specific ontologies (information science) to avoid possibly erroneous ontological assumptions encountered in modeling large-scale ontologies.

The General Formal Ontology (GFO) is a component of the Integrated System of Foundational Ontologies (ISFO), and ISFO is a part of the Integrated Framework for the Development and Application of. Written for a wide audience, it should be accessible to anyone with a general computer science background.

It includes introductions to topics such as formal theorem proving and the properties of different formal knowledge representation languages. The book is suitable as a self-study guide for the professional, student or researcher.

That is, where the method of ontology is the intuitive study of the fundamental properties, modes, and aspects of being, or of entities in general, and the method of modern symbolic logic is the rigorous construction of formal, axiomatic systems, formal ontology, the result of combining these two methods, is the systematic, formal, axiomatic.

This book offers an account of the general features and methodology of formal ontology. The book defends conceptual realism as the best system to adopt based on a logic of natural kinds.

Such theories usually propose axioms about these entities in question, spelled out in some formal language based on some system of formal logic. Ontology engineering deals with ontology development process, ontology life-cycle, and the methods and methodologies for building ontologies.

The Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) is a small, upper level ontology that is designed for use in supporting information retrieval, analysis and integration in scientific and other domains.
