The Inquiry into Modes of Existence, book and platform, are now available

Posted: July 23, 2013

The paper book is now on sale in the US.
The digital platform is now fully active (except for the fourth column -contribution- coming soon).

In addition to the text, the platform includes the index/glossary/vocabulary, a large documentation including of course what is traditionally present in footnotes (quotations and bibliographies) but vastly augmented by films, artist galleries, special works commissioned for the platform and of course a lot of pdf.
It will soon have a contribution column (not a commentary column!) for adding, correcting, subtracting and in general enlarging the content of the project. This column will be ready in September to let time for tests (and some time for people to read the book and additions!).
All of that is accessible through an an interface which we find very elegant and which begins to point at something akin to "digital bibliophily". Something that is really worthy of the label "digital humanities". In any case, nothing like what you have experienced on e-books or kindle...
