The publication is comprised of seven studies. Each study forms a closed system presenting arguments in support of particular conclusions, and it is therefore possible to read individual studies separately. Together, however, the studies form a unified whole that represents a certain concept of information science. All the arguments for this concept draw on a specific understanding of the key concept of information science – the concept of information that is confronted with several related concepts, with a certain methodological approach and various problematic issues. By reading the publication, we get answers to specific questions that are dealt with in individual studies, but also to questions that go beyond the narrow framework of individual studies and gain their significance only when we think of the publication as a whole. We can say that the publication presents a relatively comprehensive exposition of very general issues of philosophy and information science related to the phenomenon of information.
