Interpretation and hierarchical set definition in Q-analysis

  • Logic


This is the second of a series of three papers in which the methodological status of Q -analysis is investigated. A number of published applications of Q -analysis are examined to see if any methodological procedures can be identified. A number of metalevel analytic procedures are identified. These mostly relate to knowledge elicitation and the construction of explicit hierarchical vocabularies, prior to analysing the connectivity-determined backcloth -- traffic mechanisms of complex systems. The third paper will be a discussion in principle of how the rules and predicates abstracted in the first and this paper might be encoded within an expert system.
