Abstract or Description

Whether 'given' by sociological survey or the human sensorium, whether described in natural language or technical terminology -- data do not constitute information until processed and interpreted by some inferential machinery. Access to information is always mediated by inference. Determining exactly what information is at hand often requires some logical artifice and analysis. This is true on the most elementary level of information exchange.
