Abstract

On some occasions some people are wont to say, “There is no alternative!” I don't agree. There is almost always an alternative. For example, I believe that there is an alternative to information science. I don't mean librarianship or management information or information technology; I have in mind what I'd like to call for the purpose of this paper, “Alternative Information Science”.
