Given a look at the history of philosophy, one can argue that philosophical methods have evolved from those of the Pre-Socratics to contemporary methods which rely heavily on citations and the university system. Notably Pre-Socratic dialogue occurred before the formal articulations of rational and empirical doctrines so at a bare minimum, epistemic methods are far more standardized. But so too did the printing press affect how philsophical discourse is conducted.
To the best of this forum's knowledge and as a complement to this closed PhilSE post: Philosophy of Synergy and Collaboration, is there any contemporary philosophical literature on how computer fora and hypertext among whom and how philosophical discourse is or may be impacted? Please use your discretion interpreting 'contemporary' and 'hypertext'.
Some potential domains of philosophy that may touch this:
- Philosophy of information
- Philosophy of mind
- Philosophy of technology
- Philosophy of business
Any modality of reference is welcomed including books, papers, fora, and videos.
