I was drawn to philosophy by E.O. Wilson's book on Consilience. I agree with Wilson that philosophers should address the need for consilience. I believe that ontology is the key to consilience but that monism is inadequate to support consilience.

I am focused on the development of an ontology that can support consilience and believe that a number of methods and artefacts from information processing can greatly facilitate the development and evaluation of such an ontology.

What I am most interested in is defining a shared process that will provide an ontology that will facilitate consilience.
