De Solla Price's subject is simulation and, by extension, containment: information stored inside automata that themselves spawn computerisations.  ...  Turning the duck into a "'Design' of quite a different order," Vaucanson clearly is a borderline character, whose "Ingenuity," "Attention to Detail" and "Fineness, passing some Critickal Value, enable'd  ...
