This book draws together a number of important strands in contemporary approaches to the philosophical and scientific questions that emerge when dealing with the issues of computing, information, cognition and the conceptual issues that arise at their intersections. It discovers and develops the connections at the borders and in the interstices of disciplines and debates, and presents a range of essays that deal with the currently vigorous concerns of the philosophy of information, ontology creation and control, bioinformation and biosemiotics, computational and post- computational ap- proaches to the philosophy of cognitive science, computational linguistics, ethics, and education.

Her background is in theoretical physics; she has a degree in computer science, and teaches on formal languages and automata theory, research methodology, theory of science and professional ethics. She has published on the unified paninformational/pancomputational theory, information and computation semantics, and computer and professional ethics. Susan Stuart is a Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. Her primary research interests are in the philosophy of mind, Kant's epistemology and metaphysics, and developing a notion of kinaesthetic imagination. She has published on the application of Kant's transcendental psychology to contemporary issues in cognitive science, on deception, theories of mind and autism, on the conditions for conscious agency, and on the binding problem and the imagination.
