IS 590TH Theories of Information
This seminar takes up the question "What is information?" and explores a theory of information that is based on a combination of insights from philosophical logic (e.g. Frege and Church) and social pragmatics (e.g. Grice and Searle), and on elements adapted from the model for bibliographic entities developed by the International Federation of Library Associations: Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR).
