Augmenting Comprehension: Digital Tools and the History of Ideas
Dino Buzzetti, Giuliano Pancaldi & Harold Short, Eds., August 2004. £10.00
These papers are based on the proceedings of the conference on 'Humanities
Computing: Philosophy and Digital Resources', held in Bologna in September
2000. The conference was part of a project funded by the University of
Bologna to assess recent advances in humanities computing and, more
specifically, the impact of digital tools on the development of fields such
as the history of philosophy, and the history of science and technology. The
common threads linking the papers published here are computer-based textual
analysis and criticism, with the software development issues involved,
together with methodological questions. The opening speaker was Father
Roberto Busa, the much-esteemed and original pioneer of humanities
computing. The rest of the papers fall into two sections: 'Developing tools'
and 'Approaching analysis'.
