Subject: Internet course on "Computers, Information and Society"
although I am a theoretical physicist by vocation and training, I had the
good fortune of being educated in Italy, when high school was still
predicated on the belief that the humanities are the best preparation
possible for the sciences. I hope this spirit may have percolated in the
internet course on "Computers, Information and Society",
http://www.yorku.ca/sasit/sts/nats1700/ , which I have just finished
preparing. Although it is offered for credit at my university, it is open
to everyone, and some of the Humanist readers my find it of some interest.
Please do keep in mind that it is part of our program of General Education,
which seeks to provide freshmen with a broad, but critical exposure to the
humanities, the natural sciences, philosophy, and the social sciences. I
will of course be grateful for any comments, criticism and suggestions
anybody may have to offer.

NEW INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND LIBERAL EDUCATION
In a departure from our usual focus on who has been doing what in
electronic publishing, and how well it has worked, we have turned this
issue of JEP over to James A. Inman and his colleagues at Furman
University, who recently hosted a conference to explore how information
technology is affecting The Academy.
The articles are nominally about technology in teaching, but really they
are about intellectual development and the information technologies that
enhance it, social development and the information technologies that
advance it, and the ways the Internet and electronic publishing and
communication challenge and change our views of ourselves. This goes
straight to the heart of electronic publishing, and will help us see why we
do what we do.
So here is the September 2000 issue of The Journal of Electronic Publishing
for your edification:
