Texts and semantics

Topic maps for the analysis of philosophical texts


The aim is to create an online system that offers users a guided reading of the De gli Eroici furori and the possibility of making semantic searches in the text. 
The choice of this work was dictated principally by its philosophical nature, which makes it possible to highlight complex and articulate conceptual structures. Furthermore, the breakdown into various dialogues enables a diachronic development of the concepts, making the Eroici furori an ideal paradigm of application.
For the creation of the prototype three interpretative variants were mapped out around the conceptual unit of intellect, examining three separate dialogues: I.1; I.4; II.5. The dialogues were chosen with a view to highlighting the evolution of the concept in the course of the work. A representative example is yielded by the relation between love and intellect: love illuminates the intellect (I. 1), defined as visual power (I. 4), through to the vision of the image of the supreme good (II. 5), the subject of love (I. 4). The user can navigate the work or its interpretations separately; he or she can move from the maps to the text, searching the variants of the topics within the work, or move from the text to the maps by means of highlighted passages associated with specific concepts.
