I like ontology better than epistemology because it makes sense to me. Philosophy has a stricter meaning for it but in computer science, the word ontology is used all the time to describe GLOSSARIES of technical words. Or glossaries of academic fields, or classifications of life on earth, etc. So in computer science an Ontology is just words or concepts and the relationships between them and every field has a different one.
