Title

Computational philosophy and the examined text: a tale of two encyclopedias

Abstract

What can philosophers do with millions of words, and some powerful computers? I will describe our current efforts to identify the structural relations among two online encyclopedias of philosophy, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy through a variety of well-known and lesser-known techniques for extracting and comparing the statistical properties of the texts.
