        Subject: new book on the history of the humanities

Many here will I'm sure be interested in Rens Bod's recent book, <i>A 
New History of the Humanities: The Search for Principles and Patterns 
from Antiquity to the Present</i> (Oxford University Press, 2013). Bod's 
New History shows that pattern-searching has always been part of the 
humanities since Antiquity, and the book also goes into the history of 
humanities computing in the 20th century. See
