  1. Brittleness and Bureaucracy: Software as a Material for Science.Matt Spencer - 2015 - Perspectives on Science 23 (4):466-484.

Many have concentrated on outlining the epistemological similarities and differences between simulation and experiment and theory and on the diversity of kinds of modelling and representing found across domains of science. A third direction, which I explore here, looks instead at how working with computers, and working in software environments in particular, gives this kind (...)

  • The Invention of the Object: Object Orientation and the Philosophical Development of Programming Languages.Justin Joque - 2016 - Philosophy and Technology 29 (4):335-356.
    Programming languages have developed significantly over the past century to provide complex models to think about and describe the world and processes of computation. Out of Alan Kay’s Smalltalk and a number of earlier languages, object-oriented programming has emerged as a preeminent mode of writing and organizing programs. Tracing the history of object-oriented programming from its origins in Simula and Sketchpad through Smalltalk, particularly its philosophical and technical developments, offers unique insights into philosophical questions about objects, language, and our digital (...)
