"An ontology is a specification of a conceptualization."
A concept heavily used (and debated) in [create KM] and AI research. For an overview of the theoretical foundations, of how to build, maintain and evaluate ontologies, of ontology tools and specification languages and of applications of ontologies I suggest having a look at the OntoWeb Technical Roadmap (read Roadmap as in "Review").
See also the excellent article "What are the differences between a vocabulary, a taxonomy, a thesaurus, an ontology, and a meta-model?" by Woody Pidcock and Michael Uschold.
