Abstract: The Winter 1986 issue of IMAGE contained a timely and much needed critical analysis of NANDA Nursing Diagnosis Taxonomy I. In this article, Porter identifies the major problem of the NANDA Nursing Diagnosis Taxonomy I—its lack of logical consistency. However, her discussion of the problem reflects some general misunderstanding within nursing about the nature or characteristics of taxonomy and the methods that may be used to develop a taxonomy.
