About the Author:

DAVID BERRY is Lecturer in Media Studies in the Department of Political and Cultural Studies at the University of Swansea, UK. His research is particularly focused on theories of digital code and software, computational creativity, and cultural political economy. He is the author of Copy, Rip, Burn: The Politics of Copyleft and Open Source (2008) and co-editor of Libre Culture (2008). He has also published in journals such as Theory, Culture and Society, Critical Discourse Studies and The Journal of Internet Research.

Review:

'This is a beautifully written book that pulls off the difficult task of introducing the subject of software and the workings of code to the non specialist whilst also providing an original take of the philosophical and the cultural importance of Code in contemporary culture.' - Michael Bull, University of Sussex, UK

'The book is warmly recommended:[Berry's] understanding of software is fantastic. It reaches out to so many discussions and has so many implications that it is an engine in itself: it produces ideas.' - Jussi Parikka, Leonardo on-line

'What is important about The Philosophy of Software is that it really is about what it claims to be about. Rather than trying to shoehorn software into an existing philosophical or political agenda it considers software as a thing in itself and finds those philosophers and philosophical ideas that best address the vitally important phenomenon of software. However much philosophy, computer science or cybercultural theory you may know this is a book that will set you thinking about software anew.' - Rob Myers, Furtherfield
