THE FINAL WORD ON ONTOLOGY vs PARADIGM AND FRAME.
Ontology is used in subjective (experiential) and objective (testimonial) contexts to refer to a hierarchy of categories in a paradigm (network) of constant relations between existence perception cognition speech, and the service of speech in recreating the experience (loaded and inflated) or testimony (unloaded and deflated).
In the Continental Tradition (Literary, Platonic) sense it can include Experiential Categories (Phenomenalism for example), and in the Anglo Tradition (Science, Accounting, and Law), it cannot include experiential categories (imaginary, ideal, cognitive, emotive, pseudo-physical biases) as a defense against biases and their arbitrariness: inconstant, loaded, framed, fictionalized, idealized, relations between the universe and our descriptions of it.
Being, and Ontology are currently “archaic”, and we use scientific categories instead: Paradigm. Paradigms are constructed of a network of theories, from terms to narratives; and we acknowledge that Paradigms (search for consistency correspondence possibility and parsimony) and Frames (loading, framing, suggesting, overloading) are both used by us in our speech.
So we end up with (Ontology(conflationary)) vs ((Paradigm(measurement) and Frame(experience)) (deflationary))
Note below that “Being” and “Ontology” both describe this spectrum of subjective to objective. So when one uses the term Ontology, one can refer to literary-subjective-loaded-framed-arbitrary, or scientific-objective-deflated-correspondent.
