Knowledge organisation schemes affect directly the nature of knowledge states emerging
as a result of their use. Basically a knowledge organisation system may expected to
fit its explicit purpose in a more or less satisfactory manner, but besides the intended
application, each system is capable to fit an unknown number of implicit quasi-intended
and non-intended purposes. The scope and confines of knowledge potentially emerging
as a result of an application of a knowledge organisation scheme is discussed here with
a reference to the ecological approach introduced by Gibson. Special focus is placed on
explicating the possibilities of using the concepts ’affordance’ and ’ecological constraint’
to understand the process of different knowledge organisation systems contributing on
the emergence of different types of knowledge.
