Editorial Reviews

?Employing the methods of contemporary analytic philosophy, Fox has produced a careful, thought-provoking work on information and misinformation, providing essential clarifications for a foundation of information science. His methodology should not deter anyone from tackling the work, for one of its assets is that it supplies a manageable and coherent introduction to the methods and rationale of analytic philosophy. Since language is a rule-governed activity, an analysis of the use of information in ordinary language can give us some insight into its nature.... Fox's work interrogates critical issues and arguments. It is highly recommended for graduate programs and academic libraries. Since the work conveys so much information, it is hoped that it may be a harbinger of additional philosophical research that will establish a solid foundation for a field whose claims to be a science may thereby be justified.?-Library Journal
