        Subject: the strongest attack?

I would be very grateful for recommendations of what members of Humanist 
regard as the strongest, most persuasive, closely reasoned attack on the 
use of computational methods for the analysis and/or classification of 
literature in English. This, as I expect you know, is no straw-man. 

Most useful to me would be something not so focused on a single piece of 
scholarship or single author that it might seem to have problematic 
relevance to others. The attack would be best for my purposes if it has 
not been adequately answered and so continues to be provocative.

Many thanks.
