Compositional Object Granularity Perspective. A particular qualitative compositional object granularity perspective that is defined in reference to a combination of direct proper parthood and the defining properties of 'object' as its granulation criterion. The levels of granularity are demarcated according to the defining properties of different subtypes of 'object' that possess proper parthood relations to other such subtypes (e.g. 'Organelle', 'Cell', 'Organ'), and they are ordered according to the direction of direct-proper-part-of relations.
