Knowledge Representation - A Critique and a Proposal

In this chapter I present some observations about the knowledge representation systems now in common use. To some extent these observations are critiques of these systems.

My purpose here is to bring these problems more out into the open and to recognize their greater implications. Doing so leads to a rather different view of representation.
