Why "Metaphysics"?

A very short blog entry this time : Read this article: Data Management Is Based on Philosophy, Not Science

My field of study at the university was philosophy (after a couple years of political theory and constitutional democracy). I still keep the works of Aristotle on my shelf. I've always thought philosophy was the perfect way to prepare for a career in information systems. I make that recommendation to parents asking what their computer-savvy child should major in. They always look at me like I've grown an extra eye!

But philosophy is the study of ... well, of everything, and metaphysics is the precursor to philosophy.

Hence -- software metaphysics -- the fundamental thinking that prepares the ground for all software.

Worth a read.
