This booklet springs from a convention held in Stockholm in may possibly­ June 1988 on tradition, Language and synthetic Intelligence. It assembled greater than three hundred researchers and practitioners within the fields of know-how, philosophy, background of rules, literature, linguistics, social· technological know-how, and so forth. The convention was once an initiative from the Swedish heart for operating existence, in line with the undertaking AI-Based structures mzd the way forward for Language, wisdom and Re­ sponsibility in Professions in the fee thirteen programme of the ecu fee. members within the convention, or every so often researchers in parts regarding its goals, have been selected to give a contribution to this ebook. It used to be preceded through wisdom, ability and synthetic Intelligence (ed. B. Gbranzon and that i. Josefson, Springer-Verlag, London, 1988) and synthetic Intelligence, tradition and Language (ed. B. Gbranzon and M. Florin, Springer-Verlag, 1990). The latter publication springs, as this one, from the 1988 convention, and one additional publication will stick to: ability and schooling: mirrored image and adventure (Springer­ Verlag, deliberate autumn 1991). The philosophical and aesthetic curiosity of the contributions within the current quantity is largely as a result framework of the discussion Seminar, held on a regular basis on the Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, during which numerous of the members have participated.

Such sectors of language are routinely improved in the day-to-day work of the professions; even colloquial speech takes on new features as the drive toward verbal compression and syntactical simplification has its effect. Such practical changes are neither radical nor general enough to demand a deep metaphysical or epistemological critique.

In those last years of Hapsburg rule, artists and scientists were like bicyclists: they pedalled with confidence just so long as no one asked how they did it; but once someone 34 Dialogue and Technology: Art and Knowledge inquired how they avoided upsetting the machine, they lost their balance. The methods of representation and communication that had served well previously were all questioned: newer and more self-conscious techniques seemed to be needed, if one was to avoid the assumptions that were seemingly taken for granted in earlier language and literature, fine art and natural science.
