Beyond retrieval?【Computer Science VS. Humanity】

A main source of our failure to understand is that we do not command a clear view of the use of our words.—Our grammar is lacking in this sort of perspicuity. A perspicuous representation produces just that understanding which consists in ‘seeing connexions’.

Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations 122

Computer science is apt to miss the point of humanities research or to see very little of the challenge.

Digital humanity( both disciplines are “an essential part of the furniture of an educated mind”):

  • what does computing fundamentally have to do with poetry, music or the arts?
  • how computer science and the humanities might be most productively engaged with each other?
