 Subject classification with DITA and SKOS
Subject classification is as much a part of the information architecture of your content as the navigational organization.
To define a subject, you create a DITA topic (typically a concept topic) to identify an aspect of the subject matter of your content (see Figure 2).
This allows you to incorporate publicly-defined subjects into your schemes, or to integrate a formal ontology maintained by your organization with concepts that are specific to your content.

 Lacan: The Mirror Stage   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In psychoanalytic theory, the term "subject" refers to the sum of the physiological and psychological operations that sustain a human individual as a "person".
For psychoanalytic theorists like Freud and Lacan, the subject's autonomy and self-awareness is constantly undermined by impulses from the id and steered by the pressures of the superego.
In this sense, "individual" is an inaccurate synonmym for "subject" because the Freudian model of the subject is divided into at least three conflicting parts.

 Multiple Subject Map Patterns for Relationships and TMDM Information Items
Subject proxies can be interchangeable syntactic objects, or executable in-memory objects, or they can be implemented in any other way that is disclosed in a way that meets the requirements of the paradigm.
Most ontologists would say that a subject map pattern is an ontology, but it is an ontology with an interesting extra feature: it includes all the rules necessary to to detect when multiple proxies represent the same subject, and to allow multiple proxies for the same subject to be seen as a single proxy.
Subject map patterns provide the means for those interested in representing relationships to make explicit choices about what aspects of relationships they wish to represent and ultimately, the means to merge different representations of relationships into a single representation of the subject of such a relationship.
