From the Back Cover:

The philosophy of information is the area concerned with the critical investigation of the nature and principles of information. This includes its dynamics, its use, especially as far as ethical issues are concerned, and the application of information-theoretic and computational methodologies to philosophical problems.

The core aim of this volume is to present the philosophy of information as a specific way of doing philosophy. It focuses on the contributions of Luciano Floridi, and stimulates the debate on the most distinctive and controversial views he defended. This challenge is taken up by leading and upcoming scholars who work in areas related to the philosophy of information, and includes a reply from Floridi.

Although the volume focuses directly on the work of Floridi in the philosophy of information, it also connects to contemporary concerns in philosophy, especially in logic, philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, epistemology and ethics. This volume is sure to have a concrete and lasting influence by engaging the area of the Philosophy of Information with the philosophical community at large.

About the Author:

Patrick Allo is a Postdoctoral Fellow based at the Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Belgium. He is also affiliated with the Information Ethics Group at the University of Oxford. His research focuses on the interface between the philosophy of logic, formal epistemology, and the philosophy of information.
