Concept-file

Short Description

A concept-file is a file that contains documentation about a specific concept. To facilitate authors, a self-explanatory template file is available.

Purpose

The ability for people to determine whether or not they are talking about the same 'thing' (idea, concept), is prerequisite for knowing that they (correctly) understand one another - which doesn't imply they agree with each other. Concept files provide the documentation of such things that contribute to this ability.

Criterion

a file that defines/specifies a concept.

Examples

the file that contains this text is an example of a concept-file.
