Boo-Hooray and Affective Approaches to Ethical Textual Analysis
by Carson Reynolds
Boo-Hooray is a system (following Ayer) that uses Google to retreive emotional words on a topic and then decides whether the topic is “good” or “bad.” If that sounds naÃ¯ve, then maybe I can textually persude you that it is actually a philosophical experiment.
