DDC, Library of Congress and FAST Subject headings suggestions by Claude2:
Based on the content of the book Change: The Intrinsic and Fundamental Process of Existence or A River Flowing Onward, here are the recommended classification numbers and subject headings:
DDC (Dewey Decimal Classification)
570 Life Sciences, Biology
650 Management, Business
900 History, Geography, Biography
LC (Library of Congress) Subject Headings:
Knowledge, Theory of
FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) Headings:
The DDC numbers cover major themes in the book like physics, biology, business, history. The LC and FAST headings reflect key concepts discussed in the book’s exploration of change across cosmic, physical, biological, social, cultural, economic, political, psychological and philosophical dimensions. They provide diverse entry points for readers to access the book’s rich interdisciplinary perspective on the topic of change.
Based on another review of the book’s content, here are some additional DDC numbers that could be relevant:
100 Philosophy & Psychology
303 Social Sciences
306 Culture & Institutions
320 Political Science
901 History & Geography
909 World History
The suggested DDC numbers cover the major disciplines discussed in the book – physics, biology, business, history.
Some additional relevant disciplines that could be assigned DDC numbers include:
Social Sciences (300s)
Political Science (320)
World History (909)
These numbers help capture some of the additional topics covered in the book, such as philosophy, psychology, social theory, culture, politics, economics, ecology and global perspectives.
However, the original suggested DDC numbers of 500 (Science), 530 (Physics), 570 (Biology), 650 (Management), and 900 (History & Geography) likely cover the book’s core themes sufficiently. The additional numbers provide more granular options for classification but may not be essential. The original DDC recommendations seem to be the most concise and suitable top-level classifications for this interdisciplinary work.
