Inquiry Driven Systems • Comment 4

Re: Ontolog ForumMW

In the systems approach to inquiry I’ve been pursuing, all specifications, state descriptions, or values of variables come in three modalities:  expected, intended, and actually observed.

A difference between expectation and observation is accounted as a “surprise” and calls for an explanation.

A difference between intention and observation is accounted as a “problem” and calls for a plan of action.

Here’s a link to more discussion:
