Consciousness and the play of signs by Robert E Innis( )

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
Susanne Langer in focus : the symbolic mind by Robert E Innis( )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Susanne Langer was one of American philosophy's most disctinctive thinkers. Her philosophy was a deep exploration of human life as a continuous process of meaning-making through symbolic forms. Here, [author] brings readers closer to Langer's precise and nuanced account of the symbolic mind. [author] shows how Langer's though spans the sciences, aesthetics, psychology, religion, education, and music, and where it touches on concerns that were brought forward by American pragmatists, such as John Dewey and William James. [author] reveals Langer's intense focus on making meaning clear as [author] covers her entire philosophical career. Highlighting what is of permanent value to American philosophy in Langer's work, [author] determines exactly what her positions were and why she proposed them."--Back cover
