In Consciousness and the Play of Signs, Robert E. Innis offers a brilliant study of the relationship between philosophy and semiotics. Taking up the problem as foregrounded by Eco, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, Goodman, and Rorty, Innis reformulates and reconfigures the philosophical and semiotic premises and frameworks of a descriptively adequate theory of knowledge. In so doing he opens the way to a cultural and historical epistemology of embodied knowledge forms.
Innis bases his analysis primarily, though by no means exclusively, on conceptual tools derived from deep and sophisticated readings of Peirce, Polanyi, Dewey, Buhler, Husserl, and Cassirer. He explores the variety of contexts - including the motoric, the perceptual, the aesthetic, the linguistic, and the theoretical - in which semiotic and nonsemiotic factors in consciousness and world building can be related without blurring their crucial differences or irreconcilably opposing them to one another. This book heightens our understanding of ourselves and intersects with all those disciplines concerned with the production and interpretation of meaning.
