Ontological Semantics - a book review as it pertains to STEAM

Hello folks - a friend passed along a great book to read from some outstanding and long term ontological workers in the field - Sergei Nirenburg and Victor Raskin.  Key item of interest for us is the systematic approach to knoweldge managment via ontological semantics.  As such - this post will help unveil what that means and opinions on how that impacts us as scientists and engineers.  

MadSciGuys Hypothesis - Scientists and Engineers are driving towards more structured and formal representation of knoweldge versus a fully natural language platform.
