Does Kun’s Philosophy of Information define what is Information?
1  VIDIA-mant


The need for a generally accepted definition of “what is information” is self-evident and acute. However, Kun’s definition of information as “a philosophical category indicating indirect being” is unable to satisfy this need, especially when it comes to an everyday usage of the term. That forced me to seek for a more suitable definition of information. Despite the differences, Kun and I agree that we witness today a paradigm shift from data-based computational way of thinking to information-based cognitive way of thinking (Kun calls that “informalization of science”). Below is provided a short comment on this issue.

Keywords: information definition; physical information; semantic information; informalization of science;
