Four ways of thinking in information
Published: 17 June 2010 by MDPI AG in The 4th International Conference on the Foundations of Information Science session FIS 2010
Abstract: There are four ways of thinking: reductionism, projectivism, disjunctivism, integrativism. 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.
