Los múltiples rostros de la filosofía de la información

Olimpia Lombardi, Cristian López

Resumen


La filosofía de la información ha experimentado un enorme auge en los últimos años, consolidándose como un ámbito de indagación filosófica autónomo. Su tema de estudio, el concepto de información, es uno de los términos más comunes y extendidos en nuestros días, abarcando ámbitos tan disímiles como el lenguaje cotidiano y la mecánica cuántica. Esta presencia ubicua y universal del término es lo que conduce a que su análisis y abordaje filosófico sea una empresa sumamente compleja y desafiante. El presente artículo pretende ofrecer algunas líneas generales que permitan distinguir diferentes tipos de información, diferentes enfoques, diferentes contextos donde el concepto es utilizado y diferentes interpretaciones. De esta manera, se muestra que la filosofía de la información es un ámbito sumamente diverso y plural, donde el concepto de información tiene tantos significados, como usos y contextos.
