Shameless Footnote

This is a footnote of sorts, with mostly self-serving references. You came here from various points in the hypertext structure. I've provided some return links that you can follow back, or to other areas, and you can use the "Back" button on your browser to return to where you were before.

  1. For a vision of hypertext as within but pushing against the structure of university research, see Scholarly Hypertext: Self-Represented Complexity. (This is a .pdf file containing an article from the proceedings of the ACM conference Hypertext 97.)

  2. For more on hypertext and print, and how they might mix in a way that makes us relate to our arguments differently, see The Late Age of Print. (This is a version of a talk given at the Open University in the UK.)

  3. For a discussion of the perils of unity and authorship in hypertext, see the interview in Seulemonde: Socrates's Apology. That interview refers to the hypertext Socrates in the Labyrinth, which contains further discussion and examples.

  4. For a discussion of patterns of linkage that have shown up in hypertext fiction and non-fiction, see Mark Bernstein's essay on different link patterns found in hypertext writing. In another essay, Bernstein argues that it is not links but patterns of links that make hypertext what it is.

  5. The quotation about alternatives to Socrates is from "Socrates and the Story of Inquiry," in Postmodern Sophistications (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1992), p. 16.

  6. For more on Habermas's distinction of system from lifeworld, see his The Theory of Communicative Action (Boston: Beacon Press, 1981).
