Traditions of facet theory, or a garden of forking paths?

  • 1. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

While examining vagaries in terminology for key concepts such as facet, facet analysis, and facet theory, as used by different researchers and different schools of thought, the author concludes with a call for the creation of operational definitions and functional requirements to enhance, amplify or extend current practices.
