Signs : an introduction to semiotics by Thomas A Sebeok( Book )

"From the simplest hand gesture to the most complex diagram or chart, the sign is the key to the communication of ideas. In this book, Thomas A. Sebeok examines, how the sign mediates between bodily experience and abstract thought. Semiosis is the instinctive capacity of all organisms to produce and understand signs, and semiotics, the study of signs, offers powerful analytical tools for application to the study of perception. In this regard, semiotics is of relevance to a wide spectrum of scholars and professionals, including social scientists, psychologists, artists, graphic designers, and students of literature." "This second edition of Signs combines some of Sebeok's most important essays with a new general introduction, a glossary, and a revised and expanded bibliography and index. From an overview of the discipline to a more detailed exploration of sign categories, the author demonstrates the interconnection between verbal and nonverbal communication." "Aimed primarily at undergraduate and graduate students, this book will also be of interest to anyone who is interested in exploring and analysing the complex sign systems we so often take for granted."--Résumé de l'éditeur

The forms of meaning : modeling systems theory and semiotic analysis by Thomas A Sebeok( Book )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and German and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a methodological framework, developed from the field of biosemiotics, for studying semiotic phenomena as modeling processes. It presents a descriptive system for uniting semiotics and biology so that the "modelling instinct" can be studied in terms of its manifestations in various species. The book is written in an accessible textbook style, and can thus be used as a manual by both professional semioticians and students taking courses in semiotics, biology, and the communication sciences. It is composed in such a way that a broad readership can appreciate the fascinating research going on in a relatively unknown area of interdisciplinary study."--Jacket

Semiotik : ein Handbuch zu den zeichentheoretischen Grundlagen von Natur und Kultur( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in German and English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series of HANDBOOKS OF LINGUISTICS AND COMMUNICATION SCIENCE is designed to illuminate a field which not only includes general linguistics and the study of linguistics as applied to specific languages, but also covers those more recent areas which have developed from the increasing body of research into the manifold forms of communicative action and interaction. For ""classic"" linguistics there appears to be a need for a review of the state of the art which will provide a reference base for the rapid advances in research undertaken from a variety of theoretical standpoints, while in the m
Semiotics continues to astonish : Thomas A. Sebeok and the doctrine of signs( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fully-fledged doctrine of signs, with many horizons for the future, was the result of Thomas A. Sebeok's work in the twentieth century. This volume, using the testimonies of key witnesses and participants in the semiotic project, offers a picture of how Sebeok, through his development of knowledge of endosemiotics, phytosemiotics, biosemiotics and sociosemiotics, enabled semiotics in general to redraw the boundaries of science and the humanities as well as nature and culture
