Philosophical Frameworks for Understanding Information Systems

Buy
Information systems have five main areas of research and practice in which humans relate to information and communications technology. Typically isolated from one another, these areas are: the nature of computers and information, the creation of information technologies, the development of artifacts for human use, the usage of information systems, and information technology as our environment. Philosophical Frameworks for Understanding Information Systems strives to develop philosophical frameworks for these five areas and provides researchers, scholars, and practitioners in fields such as information systems, public administration, library science, education, and business management with an exemplary reference resource.
