    although I am a theoretical physicist by vocation and training, I had the
    good fortune of being educated in Italy, when high school was still
    predicated on the belief that the humanities are the best preparation
    possible for the sciences. I hope this spirit may have percolated in the
    internet course on "Computers, Information and Society",
    http://www.yorku.ca/sasit/sts/nats1700/ , which I have just finished
    preparing. Although it is offered for credit at my university, it is open
    to everyone, and some of the Humanist readers my find it of some interest.
    Please do keep in mind that it is part of our program of General Education,
    which seeks to provide freshmen with a broad, but critical exposure to the
    humanities, the natural sciences, philosophy, and the social sciences. I
    will of course be grateful for any comments, criticism and suggestions
    anybody may have to offer.

    In a departure from our usual focus on who has been doing what in
    electronic publishing, and how well it has worked, we have turned this
    issue of JEP over to James A. Inman and his colleagues at Furman
    University, who recently hosted a conference to explore how information
    technology is affecting The Academy.

    The articles are nominally about technology in teaching, but really they
    are about intellectual development and the information technologies that
    enhance it, social development and the information technologies that
    advance it, and the ways the Internet and electronic publishing and
    communication challenge and change our views of ourselves. This goes
    straight to the heart of electronic publishing, and will help us see why we
    do what we do.

    So here is the September 2000 issue of The Journal of Electronic Publishing
    for your edification:

    Technologies and Liberal Education," to remind us that the work we publish
    electronically has its enthusiastic and devoted advocates.
