The PHEADE (Philosophy of Engineering and Artifact in the Digital Era) conferences becomes a tradition.

The SRFIT / ROSPHET (Romanian Society for Philosophy Engineering and Technoethics) board and the EPHES (Engineering Philosophy Ethics and Society) Research Center are proud to anounce the organization of the 3rd International PHEADE Conference, in the Bucovina magical county of România, between October 13 and 16 .
The 2011 edition theme is From Natural to Artifacted. Trends and Challenges in the Philosophy of Information

This is also the theme of  PNII-2011-WE-012, a grant of ANCS/UEFISCDI.

The Philosophy of Information became one of the most dynamic philosophical approaches of the 21 century, because information “is a much cruder and morefundamental concept than that of knowledge on which philosophers have concentrated so much…” (Michael Dummett, 1993).

The philosophical study of information “evolves out of the analytic movement, but does not seem to belong to it. It attempts to expand the frontier of philosophical research, not by putting together pre-existing topics, and thus reordering the philosophical scenario, but by enclosing new areas of philosophical inquiry – which have

been struggling to be recognized and may not yet found room in the traditional philosophical syllabus – and by providing innovative methodologies to address traditional problems from new perspectives” (Luciano Floridi, 2008).

This is why the philosophy of information, as a brand new branch of the philosophical research, “promises to be one of the most exciting and fruitful areas ofphilosophical research of our time” and to establish a fruitful and full of sense dialogue with the science of information and the theology of information, in the Knowledge Society, just before the Singularity Era
