in reply to Ancient Philosophy And Programming Languages

Cool meditation. My brain looks favorably upon ideas which merge concepts from different disciplines, such as molecular biology and computer science, evolution and algorithm development, or in this case philosophy and programming language design. This allows you to play interesting games with your mind by transferring concepts across disciplines and seeing how well they hold up. I think that the comparison Greek Philosophies goes very well.

One minor criticism though: I believe that your "Aristotilian" should be spelled "Aristotelean," that's the way I've always seen it in my logic and history books.

Good meditation though, I enjoyed reading it quite a bit.

    For what it's worth, Chambers gives "Aristotelian" or "Aristotelean".
