Cellular Automata and the Humanities.
Gallo, Ernest
Journal of Computing in Higher Education, v6 n1 p63-77 Fall 1994
The use of cellular automata to analyze several pre-Socratic hypotheses about the evolution of the physical world is discussed. These hypotheses combine characteristics of both rigorous and metaphoric language. Since the computer demands explicit instructions for each step in the evolution of the automaton, such models can reveal conceptual strategies implicit in the ambiguities of metaphoric language.
