|History of Hypertext|
Hypertext at Brown
Since the work of Ted Nelson and Andries van Dam in the 1960s, Brown University (USA) has played a major rol in the design and development of both hypertext systems and materials. Landow leads us to some highlights of hypertext at Brown.
[1992/5] Hypertext: The Convergence of Contemporary Literary Theory and Technology
In this amplified and updated version of chapter one Landow discusses the history of the concept of hypertext. Like many others who write on hypertext and literary theory, he argues we must abandon conceptual systems founded upon ideas of center, margin, hierarchy, and linearity and replace them by ones of multilinearity, nodes, links and networks. This paradigm shift marks a revolution in human thought which has profound implications for literarute, education, and politics.

Landow has brought together a distinguished group of authorities to explore more fully the implications of hypertextual reading for contemporary literary theory.

 Electric Language: A Philosophical Study of Word Processing
All changes in writing technology tend to change the wat we percieve the world. Heim ponders how the word processor has affected language use and our ideas about it. "Word-processing has a real philosophical edge. It has implications for traditional questions in ontology and epistemology. If the technology of the word-processor percolates, through some electronic medium, from the author to reader, philosophers may have to think again about the ways we do things with words and the method by which language conveys content" [Adam Hodgkin, Times Literary Supplement].
