The Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Computing and Information

This Guide provides an ambitious, state-of-the-art survey of the themes, problems, arguments, and theories constituting the innovative field of the philosophy of computing and information. Written by an international group of leading experts, the 26 newly commissioned chapters present a complete, systematic, and critical introduction to a wide range of topics, including computer ethics, internet culture, digital art, cybernetics, and hypertext theory.

Combining careful scholarship and lucid exposition, each chapter serves as a selfstanding introduction to its topic. Supporting online resources, including an exhaustive glossary of technical terms, expanded further reading sections, and a wide ranging introduction explaining the nature of the new informational paradigm in philosophy can be found at http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/pic.

The Guide offers students a first foundation for understanding the philosophy of computing and information. It will also engage those general readers who are curious about the new computational and informational turn in philosophy, and researchers interested in broadening their experience.
