"The Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Computing and Information is a rich resource for an important, emerging field within philosophy. 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." James Moor, Dartmouth College

"There are contributions from a range of respected academics, many of them authorities in their field, and this certainly anchors the work in a sound scholarly foundation. The scope of the content, given the youthfulness of the computing era, is signigficant. The variety of the content too is remarkable. In summary this is a wonderfully fresh look at the world of of computing and information, which requires its own philosophy in testimony that there are some real issues that can exercise the mind." Reference Reviews

"The judicious choice of topics, as well as the degree of detail in the various chapters, are just what it takes neither to deter the average reader requiring this Guide, nor to makeit unfeasible placing this volume in the hands of students. Floridi's book is clearly a valuable addition to a worthy series." Pragmatics & Cognition
