240Information objects  


  • This term classifies all products of human mental activity that have an objectively recognizable structure and constitute single semantic units. That is to say, Information Objects make up independent semantic units that provide information about the propositional content of a conceptual object. In this respect, the content and the symbols used are linked in such a way that any attempt to transcribe them to another set of symbols usually causes the information to be altered. Being a semantic unit that connects the information and the symbol, every information object assumes in advance the symbolic object, but not vice versa. Information objects can have many forms (written text, image, sound, graph, etc.). This makes information objects a subclass of not only the propositional object but of the symbolic as well. It allows us to draw conclusions about the socio-historic and cultural framework of the object, its creator and the way it was created. Examples of information objects include the various forms of primary reference data (archives etc.) used in scientific research.
