This paper presents a method exploiting Object Oriented (O-O) model concepts to build a Knowledge Base System (KBS) in empirical domains such as the Human Sciences. The method relies on a particular model whose specific features are: a twin conceptual level (internal and external level); a multiple ascending inner inheritance based on object composition; evaluation and dynamical functions; and a zoom operator providing an adapted perception of the expert’s domain. Model, method, and automated tools yield the design of a KBS for the diagnostic aid of intoxications with antidepressive drugs. It relies on fuzzy functions and time modelling, and takes a case based reasoning approach.
