This thesis seeks to advance the use of computational techniques for the task of philosophical interpretation. To this end I present a novel method which draws on techniques and formal tools from logic-based knowledge modeling, automated reasoning, and natural language processing to support researchers in philosophy. This highly-interdisciplinary and experimental effort forms part of the e-Ideas project which seeks to build a new, computationally-scalable methodology for History of Ideas. I test my method on concrete research questions under investigation by e-Idea’s members and thus provide an illustration of my method’s functioning in practice as well as evidence for its methodological adequacy.
