Abstract

The greatest philosopher amongst us is as confined and hamstrung as the least significant thinker by the very language and notations in which his or her ideas can be expressed. By encapsulating complex concepts and ideas in simple words and phrases that we then reuse, we avoid the need to repeat the small and stumbling steps of our predecessors. So too is Computer Science advanced, allowing practitioners to benefit from the toil and wisdom of the pioneers through reusing models and abstraction.
