Taxonomy

Taxonomy (the science of classification) is often undervalued as a glorified form of filing. In the animal kingdom taxonomy is a fundamental and dynamic science, dedicated to exploring the causes of relationships and similarities among organisms. Classifications are theories about the basis of natural order, not dull catalogues compiled only to avoid chaos. Taxonomy can also be applied to categorisations beyond the hierarchical structure of organisms. Take DVD-Video-Films for example, these can be broken down into a simple, bilateral, taxonomic framework: Fightin’ and Boobies. Yeah!
