English abstract

Objective. The philosophical foundations that support the use and development of the Dewey Decimal Classification (DDC) were explored. Design/Methodology/Approach. Different primary and secondary sources were reviewed to analyze the theories and ideas that founded the DDC. Results/Discussion. The DDC is a system that bases its scheme on the ideas put forward by Bacon and Hegel. However, its operation is due to what has been called “Decimal theory”. Conclusions. The DDC is a system of library organization that is influenced by modern scientific ideas in the nineteenth century, and should not be seen as a simple tool for classifying books. Originality/Value. New bases are given to Librarianship as a science, based on the theoretical study of the DDC and the organization of knowledge associated with it.

Objetivo. Se exploraron los fundamentos filosóficos que sustentan el uso y desarrollo de la Clasificación Decimal Dewey (CDD). Diseño/Metodología/Enfoque. Se revisaron diferentes fuentes primarias y secundarias para analizar las teorías e ideas que fundamentaron la CDD. Resultados/Discusión. La CDD es un sistema que basa su esquema en las ideas planteadas por Bacon y Hegel. No obstante, su funcionamiento se debe a lo que se ha denominado “Teoría decimal”. Conclusiones. La CDD es un sistema de organización bibliotecario que está influenciado por las ideas científicas modernas reinantes en el siglo xix, y no debe ser vista como una simple herramienta para clasificar libros. Originalidad/Valor. Se aportan nuevas bases a la Bibliotecología como una ciencia, a partir del estudio teórico de la CDD y la organización del conocimiento asociado a ésta.
