A manifesto for the arts within the electronic age, A New Republic of Letters argues that the background of texts, including the tools through which they're preserved and made on hand for interpretation, are the overriding topics of humanist learn within the twenty-first century. thought and philosophy, that have grounded the arts for many years, now not suffice as an highbrow framework. Jerome McGann proposes we glance in its place to philology--a self-discipline which has been out of style for plenty of a long time yet which versions the worries of electronic humanities with astounding fidelity.
For centuries, books were how to shield and transmit wisdom. yet as libraries and museums digitize their records and readers abandon paperbacks for capsule desktops, electronic media are exchanging books because the repository of cultural reminiscence. whereas either the undertaking of the arts and its conventional modes of scholarship and significant learn are an identical, the electronic atmosphere is using disciplines to paintings with new instruments that require significant, and sometimes very tricky, institutional adjustments. Now greater than ever, students have to recuperate the speculation and approach to philological research if the arts are to fulfill their perennial commitments. Textual and editorial scholarship, usually marginalized as a narrowly technical area, may be made a concern of humanists' attention.

See on this matter the preamble to the Projet d’un institut polytechnique de philosophie (typescript, Département de philosophie, Université de Paris VIII [Vincennes], 1979). Lyotard carried this note over to the published book. The full significance of all that would not begin to come clear until later. The dedicatee of Lyotard’s book, that Institut Polytechnique de Philosophie of the University of Paris VIII (Vincennes), was not in fact about to supplant what Lyotard regarded as the outmoded research pro- “the inorganic or ga ni zation of memory” 35 grams of the traditional university.

See Lyotard’s Le Différend (1983), where the idea is more fully explored. Those ideas quickly became a point d’appui for a broad-ranging discussion across the humanities. And of course Lyotard’s institutional position 34 from history to method helps to explain why.
