This is the most systematic discussion of semiotics yet published. - "Choice". "A bravura performance..." - Thomas Sebeok. "Mapping a discipline as new as semiotics is more than an exercise in compilation and description. It involves substantive choices regarding the taxonomy and dimensions of the filed as a whole. N'th succeeds admirably in this formidable undertaking." - "Library Journal". "N'th's handbook is an outstanding encyclopedia that provides first-rate information on many facets of sign-related studies, research results, and applications." - "Social Sciences in General". "N'th's book is a remarkable survey of the incredibly broad field of semiotics...For those who desire a comprehensive survey of this diverse field, N'th's book is unsurpassed." - "Library Quarterly". N'th's ambitious work covers the field of semiotics from Aesthetics to Zoosemiotics. Organized in eight parts, it contains sixty-five encyclopedic articles, a consolidated bibliography of almost 3,000 titles, an index of names, and an index of terms.
