PhiloSURFical

Semantically browse a philosophical text

PhiloSURFical is an application built to experiment the new navigation mechanisms the Semantic Web can make available. Thanks to a domain ontology, the navigation and understanding of a philosophical text is enhanced by providing it with a series of departing contextual pathways. We call these pathways "learning narratives", as they dynamically recollect dispersed web-resources and organize them into a coherent narrative, whose structure is inspired by perspectives commonly used when teaching philosophy (e.g. theoretical, historical, geographical, argumentative..)
