Global issues in the perspective of information science

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Is it possible to answer the question about the role of the study of information while the general concept of information is a subject of continuing discussion on its definition, its epistemic and ontological status? In spite of the differences in its understanding, the concept of information gives a common platform for the study of life in a plurality of contexts related to most critical issues of the global scale, such as global warming. This holistic perspective allows identification of the sources of problems and of the threats inherent in currently proposed solutions.
