Abstract

The recent development of research field of Computing and Philosophy and especially its Philosophy of Information (PI) branch has spurred investigations of philosophical, methodological and ethical foundations of computing. This thesis is a result of studies into two basic areas of PI that concern meaning (semantics) and underlying value system (ethics). The aim is, among others, to encompass those both views within the common ground, and to indicate the necessity to bring those two fields together in a holistic characterization of computing as a discipline. In general, a method of conceptual integration is used in order to bridge gaps between different disciplines like different branches of philosophy, computing (including theory of computation, intelligent systems, cognitive science, information science, knowledge management), natural science (physics and biology in the first place) and even methodology of science. The first gives first the general view of the new emerging scientific paradigm shift that is going on parallel with the ubiquitous computing. Computing is characterized as a new discipline with the potential of starting a new Renaissance – bringing together sciences, technology, humanities, arts and practical activities into a new holistic worldview. We do not see the Universe nowadays as Laplacea
