Digital humanities and philosophy – a problem of digital research
Languages of publication
The aim of the paper is to clarify the interdisciplinary and methodological nature of the relationship between philosophy and the digital humanities. The examination process consists of an analysis of five modes of engagement of IT and humanities elaborated by Svensson and of their specifications in terms of digital research in philosophy. Firstly, we introduce the issue of digital humanities and their definitions; then we define Svensson’s modes of engagement of IT and humanities (IT as a tool, study object, expressive medium, experimental laboratory, activist venue); and we exemplify each of them with digital philosophical projects and their methodological assumptions (the first mode is analysed in detail). The intention is to offer a systematic overview of the relationship between philosophy and the digital humanities.
