specifically dependent continuant

Definitions

b is a specifically dependent continuant = Def. b is a continuant & there is some independent continuant c which is not a spatial region and which is such that b s-depends_on c at every time t during the course of b’s existence. (axiom label in BFO2 Reference: [050-003])

editor note

Specifically dependent continuant doesn't have a closure axiom because the subclasses don't necessarily exhaust all possibilites. We're not sure what else will develop here, but for example there are questions such as what are promises, obligation, etc.

example of usage

the role of being a doctor

of one-sided specifically dependent continuants: the mass of this tomato

of relational dependent continuants (multiple bearers): John’s love for Mary, the ownership relation between John and this statue, the relation of authority between John and his subordinates.

the shape of this hole.

the disposition of this fish to decay

the pink color of a medium rare piece of grilled filet mignon at its center

the mutual dependence of proton donors and acceptors in chemical reactions [79

Reciprocal specifically dependent continuants: the function of this key to open this lock and the mutually dependent disposition of this lock: to be opened by this key

the smell of this portion of mozzarella

the function of this heart: to pump blood

the mutual dependence of the role predator and the role prey as played by two organisms in a given interaction

has associated axiom(fol)

(iff (SpecificallyDependentContinuant a) (and (Continuant a) (forall (t) (if (existsAt a t) (exists (b) (and (IndependentContinuant b) (not (SpatialRegion b)) (specificallyDependsOnAt a b t))))))) // axiom label in BFO2 CLIF: [050-003]
