    On 5 December 2011, Professor Robert Darnton (Harvard University) presented his stimulating and thought-provoking paper on the future of books in our emergent digital culture, as part of Cardiff University’s Distinguished Lecture Series. Using the metaphor of Jefferson’s Taper for the exchange of ideas (the transfer of light from one candle to another – a process in which one person gained while the other did not lose), Professor Darnton outlined ways in which digitization initiatives can be co-ordinated in order to provide a truly universal library for the 21st century.

    I haven't read the article yet, but I would ask, "Did he include philosophy in his digitisation of events?

    I shall now read the article open-mindedly to see, if in fact, he did.
