Data Management Is Based on Philosophy, Not Science
My field of study at the university was philosophy (after a couple years of political theory and constitutional democracy). I still keep the works of Aristotle on my shelf. I’ve always thought philosophy was the perfect way to prepare for a career in information systems. I make that recommendation to parents asking what their computer-savvy child should major in. They always look at me like I’ve grown an extra eye!
But philosophy is the study of … well, of everything, and metaphysics is the precursor to philosophy.
Hence — software metaphysics — the fundamental thinking that prepares the ground for all software.
Worth a read.
