Stewart J. & Andreewsky E. (1992) From information to autonomy: Analogies between biology and the language sciences. Kybernetes 21(5): 15–32. Fulltext at
According to the dominant paradigm in both biology and the language sciences, “information” is an entity which can be “contained” in genes or words; “transferred” to a receptor, this “information” is supposedly the key to phenomena such as the ontogenesis of living organisms or the meaning of language. Argues that this paradigm suffers from unsurmountable weaknesses and, moreover, that possible alternatives exist: maybe the time has come to abandon the information cult.
