Information

The proceedings from the Sixth Symposium at Royaumont in 1962 were titled Le concept d’information dans la science contemporaine (The Concept of Information in Contemporary Science) and were published three years later in Paris in 1965 by Les Éditions de Minuit.

With the move of Logique et Analyse to a partial open access publication-policy, the 2006 special issue on Logic and the Philosophy of Information edited by Luciano Floridi and Patrick Allo is now freely accessible (free account required).
