Subthemes: Introduction to Themes, for Analysis
This series of blog posts will serve as notes to myself on my long-term, evolving project. The motivation for that project is to explore whether and how concepts can be compared quantitatively to each other by their relative importance (centrality) or cognitive density (complexity). For example, can we say anything meaningful and empirical on those two dimensions to compare the concepts of “Silence” and “Destruction”? Stated differently, can data suggest one of those concepts is better known, more widely used, broader in associations – more central to English speakers, or whether one is deeper in thoughtfulness, more inter-connections, an abundance of associations – more complex?
