9781848166875: Towards a Semiotic Biology: Life is the Action of Signs

This book presents programmatic texts on biosemiotics, written collectively by world leading scholars in the field (Deacon, Emmeche, Favareau, Hoffmeyer, Kull, Marko , Pattee, Stjernfelt). In addition, the book includes chapters which focus closely on semiotic case studies (Bruni, Kotov, Maran, Neuman, Turovski).

According to the central thesis of biosemiotics, sign processes characterise all living systems and the very nature of life, and their diverse phenomena can be best explained via the dynamics and typology of sign relations. The authors are therefore presenting a deeper view on biological evolution, intentionality of organisms, the role of communication in the living world and the nature of sign systems - all topics which are described in this volume. This has important consequences on the methodology and epistemology of biology and study of life phenomena in general, which the authors aim to help the reader better understand.

From the Inside Flap:

The book presents the programmatic texts of biosemiotics, written collectively by the world leading scholars in the field (Deacon, Emmeche, Favareau, Hoffmeyer, Kull, Marko, Pattee, Stjernfelt). In addition, the book also includes chapters on semiotic case studies (Bruni, Kotov, Maran, Neuman, Turovski).

According to the central thesis of this approach, the sign processes are the ones that characterise all living systems and the very nature of life, and its diverse phenomena can be best explained via the dynamics and typology of sign relations. This implies a new view on biological evolution, intentionality of organisms, the role of communication in the living world, and the nature of sign systems topics described in the volume. This has also important consequences to the methodology and epistemology of biology and study of life phenomena in general.
