preprint description
I'll survey some of the aspects relevant to a philosophical discussion of information taking into account the developments of algorithmic information theory. I will propose that meaning is deep in Bennett's logical depth sense, and that algorithmic probability may provide the stability for a robust algorithmic definition of meaning, taking into consideration the interpretation and the receiver's own knowledge encoded in the story of a message.
