Tradition und RezeptionDigital Classics Books
Like Homer, Plato is one of the ancient authors with the richest reception from Antiquity through the Middle Ages to modern times. Nevertheless, and precisely for this reason, this tradition at best has been partially explored so far. The authors approach this old goal of research in the humanities in new ways by applying methods from computer science to Plato and his reception. To this end, innovative methods of paraphrase identification have been developed in order to establish them as a method of research in classical and cultural studies.
