Freely Faceted Classification

Classification English

A freely faceted classification is a scheme for classification guided by explicitly stated postulates, canons and principles for the three planes of work and involves the analysis of the subject into its facets in the idea plane, their transformation into kernal terms in the verbal planes using current standard technology, and these translation to kernal numbers in the national plane according to a scheme of classification and the synthesis of kernal numbers into a class number. This methodology is based on postulates about the structure and development of the universe of subjects, and theoretically admits the addition of the large number of the characteristics one after another in a large number of facets to be added one after another in the classification of the universe of subjects.

    (1) Analysing and synthesizing the subject,

    (2) Exploration of subject adjusting newly assigned subjects in a tolerably helpful sequence,

    (3) Structure of Banyan tree analogy,

    (4) Concept of Meccaro analogy, and
