In this context four distinct categories of knowledge are identifiable. 1. Laws of Nature describe inherent properties of natural entities found in artefacts. 2. Laws of the Artificial describe contrived properties of artificial entities. 3. Natural Techniques help combine natural entities to form artificial entities. 4. Artificial Techniques help designers combine artificial entities to form artefacts. This classification can be used to identify deficiencies and special features of research on information systems en
