The Art of Interpretation in the Age of Computation

Paul Kockelman

  • Accounts for processes that underlie each and every digital technology deployed today
  • Assumes a novel approach by replacing the conventional tools of social theory with American pragmatism to investigate these technologies
  • Remains in dialogue with certain currents and key texts in anthropology and linguistics, science and technology studies, critical theory, computer science, and media studies
  • Attempts to respond to fundamental and persisting concerns of computer science, as they emerged in the first half of the twentieth-century
