Description:
An introductory, comparative account of three mathematical approaches to information: the classical quantitative theory of Claude Shannon, developed in the 1940s and 50s, a quantitative-based, qualitative theory developed by Fred Dretske in the 1970s, and a qualitative theory introduced by Jon Barwise and John Perry in the early 1980s and pursued by Barwise, Israel, Devlin, Seligman and others in the 1990s.
