"Luciano Floridi presents a book that will set the agenda for the philosophy of information. 
PI is the philosophical field concerned with (1) the critical investigation of the conceptual 
nature and basic principles of information, including its dynamics, utilisation, and sciences, 
and (2) the elaboration and application of information-theoretic and computational methodologies
to philosophical problems. This book lays down, for the first time, the conceptual foundations 
for this new area of research."
