The logic of being informed

The logic of being informed

(p.224) 10 The logic of being informed
The Philosophy of Information

Luciano Floridi (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The chapter defends the view that the axiom schemata of the normal modal logic KTB (also known as B or Br or Brouwer's system) are well suited to model the relation of ‘being informed’. After having shown that information loigic (IL) can be constructed as an informational reading of KTB, four consequences of a KTB-based IL are explored: information overload; the veridicality thesis (Iapp); the relation between IL and EL; and the KpBp principle or entailment property, according to which knowledge implies belief. Although these issues are discussed later in the chapter, they are the motivations behind the development of IL and the elaboration of this chapter at this point of the book, for they prepare the ground for an informational analysis of knowledge, developed in the following two chapters.

Keywords:   being informed, B system, doxastic logic, entailment property, information overload, modal logic, epistemic logic, veridicality thesis
