Matt Butcher explores the philosophical systems devised by Plato and Aristotle, showing how Plato laid the foundations for what is now OOP, while Aristotle’s dynamic model is at the core of FP.
Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web. Strange Loop was created in 2009 by software developer Alex Miller and is now run by a team of St. Louis-based friends and developers under Strange Loop LLC, a for-profit but not particularly profitable venture.
Refreshingly different and fun...
As the presenter suggests, my introduction to programming and philosophy was through Douglas Hofstadter. I however did not go further than reading some introductory books in philosophy.
Another interesting book in the same vein is Digital Mantras - The Language of Abstract and Virtual Worlds, by Steve Holtzman.
I would like to say that language should not only support both OO and functional paradigms but also have meta-programming - to parallel the notion of metaphysics. However closing the loop in this way makes things a bit messy. Now your 'object' world can access the 'meta' world and the clean division between meta and object is lost. As Douglas Hofstadter points out Gödel's famous incompleteness proof is based on this idea.
Re: Refreshingly different and fun...
Scala is truly secular supporting/negating both religions OO and FP.
