The Ontological Status Of Quantum Information


Abstract
Quantum mechanics raise many philosophical questions regarding the status of reality. One of the newest and very important subdomain of quantum mechanics is quantum information theory. There are two questions to which a philosophical approach to quantum information has to respond: What is the referent of the concept of quantum information? and How does quantum information behaves? After a general presentation of the characteristics of quantum information as revealed by quantum information theory, I will analyze different responses to those questions, which try to establish the ontological status of quantum information. These responses are important from the philosophical point of view because they question the basic elements from which the world is constituted
