Abstract

This paper traces the link between famous people and concepts over time. People can be remembered for being ‘wise’, ‘kind’ or ‘tyrannical’, or simply for one main thing or event. Sometimes these perspectives on people, or the reason they should be remembered, shifts over time, and sometimes they remain relatively stable. The link between fame and concepts can be studied systematically with off-the-shelf tools with a gentle learning curve. In this paper we will demonstrate this by tracing the link between famous people and concepts in Dutch journal Vaderlandsche Letteroefeningen.
