Abstract

The notion of a conceptual file is introduced as a new tool in data analysis; it allows an interactive procedure of conceptual analysis supporting in particular a flexible exploration of the data. The idea of a conceptual file is explained by an example from the science of international relations. A mathematical definition of a conceptual file is given in the frame of formal concept analysis. Finally, it is outlined how conceptual files might be implemented.
