|Ontology: is the set of material or immaterial objects, of which a theory assumes that it can make statements about them. According to classical logic, an existence assumption must be assumed. In other fields of knowledge, the question of whether relations really exist or are merely mental constructs, is not always regarded as decisive as long as one can work with them. Immaterial objects are e.g. linguistic structures in linguistics. See also existence, mathematical entities, theoretical entities, theoretical terms, reality, metaphysics, semantic web._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Ontology/observation/interpretation/sociology/method/Habermas: when we describe a behaviour as a teleological action, we assume that the actor makes certain ontological conditions, that he or she expects an objective world in which he or she recognizes something and in which he or she can intervene purposefully. At the same time, the observer creates ontological conditions with regard to the subjective world of the actor. He or she distinguishes between "the" world and the world as it appears from the point of view of the actor. He or she can determine descriptively what the actor thinks is true, in contrast to what the observer believes is true._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
