Gärdenfors I 49
Qualia/Pustejovsky/Frame Theory/Semantics/Gärdenfors: Pustejovsky's Qualia (Pustejovsky, 1991) are inspired by Aristotle's modes of explaining entities and relations. There are four types of Qualia: 1. formal Qualia: concern what distinguishes something in a larger domain from others
2. constitutive Qualia: concerns the relation between an entity and its constitutive parts (meronomic relations).
3. telic Qualia: concern the purpose and function of the entity
4. agentive Qualia: concern the origin and emergence of the entity.
