Resumen: The aim of this paper is to offer a new interpretation of information: a causal-physical interpretation. We shall turn to manipulability theories of causation (mainly to its interventionist version) in order to show that “information” refers to a physical property, which we can manipulate to bring about communication situations. According to our approach, the nature of communication is a causal structure, unveiled by manipulability criteria. Furthermore, we think that our approach will be able to deal with some issues of present-day interpretations of information.
Palabras clave: communication, manipulability, statistical information, causation, philosophy of physics
