Philosophy Haiku 2019 (guest post by Eliran Haziza)

Eliran Haziza, a philosophy graduate student at the University of Toronto, wrote a haiku-detecting program and ran it on philosophy texts. He previously shared some of the wonderful results with us in a comment on a previous post earlier this year. This time, his program scanned around 3000 papers from 33 philosophy journals that were published either online or in print in 2019 (he notes that in some journals, papers that were published in print in 2019 had already been published online 2 or 3 years earlier). He says: “My program found several thousand haiku. Many were automatically filtered out. I saved around 200 that were decent. I hand picked the 25 best. Some are funny. Some are absurd. Some are just too good. Overall they paint a certain picture of academic philosophy.”     Hideo Hagiwara, “Early Spring” Philosophy Haiku 2019 by Eliran Haziza   • • • Distress.
