Dilemmas in the Study of Information: Exploring the Boundaries of Information Science

Synopsis

This book identifies the limits of the field of information science, and thus raises very real problems of the discipline in the context of people using, misusing, and abusing information. Neill provides many examples of the uses of information to illustrate how difficult it is to work with. In particular he highlights problems of information scientists using information to study information. It is Neill's contention that information use problems are, in certain instances, insoluble dilemmas, for they are grounded in human nature and can be solved only by altering that nature.
