Abstract

Timpson’s deflationary view of information is an innovative and well articulated view that had
a great impact on the philosophy of physics community. However, recently some of the
arguments supporting the deflationist view have been critically reviewed. The aim of this
paper is to retain the general idea behind Timpson’s proposal, but replacing the conflictive
elements used to support his thesis with new argumentative resources based on the notion of
manipulability.
