The gap between the "hard" science perspective and the "soft" science perspective on information reflect these ways of thinking. The paper discusses how this gap might be bridged by applying the fourth way of thinking.


Objectivism, subjectivism, subject-object-dialectics, materialism, idealism, emergentist materialism, externalism, internalism, perspectivism
