Excerpt: The author of this article adequately criticizes the use of the notion of information by biologists in general, and by sociobiologists in particular. He, however, does not go far enough; and this, presumably, because, judging by two questions that he asks, he thinks that there is some fundamental significance in the notion of information that is still hidden. His questions are … how the discernible events described by the strict sense of information (restriction imposed upon a set of possibilities) interact with those described by the meaning (metaphorical) sense of information?’; and … there remains more fundamental problems, one of which is to understand how the two senses of information interact and, in fact, become one another?’.
