Art History as a Systematic Science

11 December 2018

Networks are all around us and they are indeed at the base of many transformative technologies that have made the world even more connected and globalized. With the advent of modern computational means, the study of complex networked systems has reached a new dimension, spurring new mathematical and computational approaches.

In the last decades, high-impact science has been increasingly achieved through the combination of ideas coming from different disciplines. Nevertheless the most prestigious award in science, the Nobel Prize, is still awarding few individual categories (physics, chemistry, phisiology or medicine), favouring papers that generate very little interest outside of their awarded field.
