Information as Idea

I had the opportunity to attempt to define information in a historical and philosophical way. Using what I had learned in the first few weeks of my graduate studies Library & Information Science I put this short paper together. It gets a little out there and I think I tried to include way too much for this first paper.

 

That said I feel that it still captures many elements of what information is and tries to make an argument for what the science of information should be based on that definition.
