The Routledge Handbook Of Philosophy Of Information from the Author: Luciano Floridi. Information and communication technology occupies a central place in the modern world, with society becoming increasingly dependent on it every day. It is therefore unsurprising that it has become a growing subject area in contemporary philosophy, which relies heavily on informational concepts. The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Information is an outstanding reference source to the key topics and debates in this exciting subject and is the first collection of its kind. Comprising over thirty chapters by a team of international contributors the Handbook is divided into four parts: basic ideas quantitative and formal aspects natural and physical aspects human and semantic aspects. Within these sections central issues are examined, including probability, the logic of information, informational metaphysics, the philosophy of data and evidence, and the epistemic value of information. The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Information is essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy, computer science and communication studies.

Danto And His Critics from the Author: Mark Rollins. It has been 30 years since the initial publication of Arthur C. Danto's influential and award-winning treatise on the philosophy of art, "The Transfiguration of the Commonplace." What is the current critical assessment of Danto and his body of work? And how have Danto's own views changed on the nature and meaning of art? In this fully revised and expanded edition of "Danto and His Critics," leading Danto scholars offer their updated critical assessments of the works and ideas of the Johnsonian Professor Emeritus in the Department of Philosophy at Columbia University and long-time art critic for "The Nation." While Danto has authored several influential books and essays on the nature of knowledge, action, aesthetics, history, and mind, he is best known for his provocative thoughts on the philosophy of art. In addition to the many insightful essays featured in the first edition - along with responses by Danto - this volume contains five completely new chapters, numerous postscripts to the original essays, and a revised "Replies to Critics" section. And in a fascinating new afterword, Danto reflects on how his life as an artist before taking up philosophy shaped and informed his ideas. By offering such a comprehensive, integrated, and incisive treatment of Arthur Danto's work, the second edition of "Danto and His Critics" reveals great insights into the state of contemporary art from the mind of one of the major shapers of recent aesthetic theory.
