Extensive theories on relevance appear in several fields, among them logic, philosophy, and communication. Relevance theories in logic were not used in information science, and thus are only briefly characterized here to illustrate a possible connection. Those in philosophy were used to some extent and were extensively reviewed in Part I, thus only a synthesis is provided. Finally, a theory of relevance in communication, formulated in the 1980s and 1990s, had some impact on thinking about relevance in information science, thus it is reviewed here in some detail as theory-on-loan, that is as a theory that is used and interpreted within the context of information science.
Schamber et al. (1990) re-examined thinking about relevance in information science, addressed the role of relevance in human information behavior and in systems evaluation, summarized major ideas and experiments, and came to a forceful conclusion that relevance should be modeled as being dynamic and situational.

Cognitive Principle of Relevance: The claim that human cognition tends to be geared to maximization of relevance. 2. Communicative Principle of Relevance: The claim that every ostensive stimulus conveys a presumption of its own relevance. In other words, human cognition is relevance oriented, and so is human communication.
