The book aims to encourage multiple perspective read-ing attitudes,
which are meant to trigger and inspire new ways of viewing and
engineering information. An innovative linguistic theory as well as a
new model for text generation and text understanding are
illustrated. The linguistic theory, enhanced by a novel artificial
intelligence-based approach, will help readers to acquire information
engineering skills and may be implement-ed in the design of knowledge
management systems.
