An Experiment on Plato’s Gorgias as an Introduction to Textometry

Abstract : Current implementations of Digital Humanities for classical studies are often either rich digital editions, with much effort devoted to display a pleasant layout and to offer efficient navigation paths; or indexed corpora or databases with querying facilities, for which the focus is on searching functionalities and not on primary text visualization and reading. However, through the example of the textometric approach (presented in section 1.1) that is implemented in TXM open-source software (1.2), we would like to show that complex textual representation and computational analysis can be both taken into consideration into a unique digital framework (1.3). In order to show that such a method can offer great possibilities for researchers in the Classics field, we will give a more complete presentation of the methodology applied to Plato’s Gorgias (section 2 and 3).
