Basic Problems of Mereotopology

In Nicola Guarino (ed.), Formal Ontology in Information Systems. Ios Press. pp. 29–38 (1998)
Mereotopology is today regarded as a major tool for ontological analysis, and for many good reasons. There are, however, a number of open questions that call for an answer. Some are philosophical, others have direct applicative import, but all are crucial for a proper assessment of the strengths and limits of mereotopology. This paper is an attempt to put sum order in this area.
