Abstract:

"Software now constitutes a new form of logic, rhetoric, and grammar, a new means of thinking, arguing, and interpreting. The Software Arts argues that the foundational ideas and practices of computing come from the arts -- specifically, from a coupling of the liberal and the mechanical arts. The claim is that the software arts is a new name for something that has been ongoing for centuries: the pursuit of methods that provide us the means to invent and interrogate statements that can be or already are widely accepted as statements of connection, equivalence, or identity. The book accomplishes this by analyzing how a certain number of disciplines that were supposed to be at the heart of literacy or education in general (the famous liberal arts) are altered by their digitalization"--
