Each chapter combines careful scholarship with an engaging writing style. Includes an exhaustive glossary of technical terms. Ideal as a course text, but also of interest to researchers and general readers. Table of Contents Notes on Contributors. This excellent volume covers the basic topics in depth, yet is written in a style that is accessible to non-philosophers.
There is no other book that assembles and explains systematically so much information about the diverse aspects of philosophy of computing and information. I believe this book will serve both as an authoritative introduction to the field for students and as a standard reference for professionals for years to come. I highly recommend it. The scope of the content, given the youthfulness of the computing era, is signigficant.

follow url A JRF is an immense honour, this much I understood at the time, because the competition was tougher than ferocious. But it is also an incredible privilege, which I slowly grasped only later.
It allowed me to pursue any research I thought was important, without any constrains, and no required deliverables, for four yeas. Today, it seems unbelievable.
Without that JRF I would have never had the courage and the time to work on the foundation of the philosophy of information. During these years in Oxford, I held several lecturerships in different Colleges and taught a variety of subjects, from Ancient Philosophy to Wittgenstein, but mostly Mathematical Logic. The didactic experience was extremely demanding but also incredibly instructive.
I do not regret it, but I do not miss it.
