AbstractAt the invitation of Kun Wu, Head of the International Center for the Philosophy of Information at the Xi’An Jiaotong University, Pedro C. Marijuan paid a ten-day academic visit to the University 4–14 November 2016. During his visit, Marijuan presented three lectures to students and teachers and had two dialogues with Wu November 11th and 12th on the topic of “The Nature and Unification of Information Science and Information Philosophy”. Under this main topic, several sub-topics were discussed, such as the origin and development of information science and technology, the concept of entity, the fundamental principles for building a unified information science, relevant bio-information studies, the epistemological media of information philosophy, the relationship between information flows and matter-energy flows, the statuses of computationalism and general information theory, the structure of unified information science and so on. This extended abstract succinctly displays some basic content of those dialogues.
