In information science, an upper ontology (also known as a top-level ontology or foundation ontology) is an ontology (in the sense used in information science) which consists of very general terms (such as "object", "property", "relation") that are common across all domains. An important function of an upper ontology is to support broad semantic interoperability among a large number of domain-specific ontologies by providing a common starting point for the formulation of definitions. Terms in the domain ontology are ranked "under" the terms in the upper ontology, and the former stand to the latter in subclass relations.

  • Si parla di ontologia fondamentale o primitiva per riferirsi ad un'ontologia che ha come obiettivo quello di descrivere "ciò che esiste" secondo un insieme di entità ritenuto non ulteriormente ascrivibile ad altri insiemi di entità, e per mezzo del quale poter dare una descrizione esaustiva e completa di ogni altra realtà. In un certo senso l'obiettivo di ogni ontologia descrittiva (di tipo oggettivistico) è proprio quello di riuscire ad individuare entità fondamentali e darne una descrizione esauriente: ne consegue che è implicita in ogni ontologia una pretesa di fondamentalità. Pertanto il termine "ontologia fondamentale" è a rigore ridondante semanticamente.
