Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Basics Of Semiotics by John Deely. The last half century has produced an increasing interest in semiotics, the study of signs. As an interdisciplinary field, moreover, semiotics has produced a vast literature from many different points of view. As the semioticss has expanded, clear definitions and goals become more elusive. Semioticians still lack a unified theory of the purposes of semiotics as a discipline The last half century has produced an increasing interest in semiotics, the study of signs.
Semioticians still lack a unified theory of the purposes of semiotics as a discipline as well as a comprehensive rationale for the4 linking of semiosis at the levels of culture, society, and nature. As Deely suggests in his preface, the image of the modern semiotic universe is the same as that of astronomy in as suggested by John Donne: Paperbackpages.

Apr 05, Patrick rated it it was ok Shelves: This text contains interesting information, but the delivery of this information is hilariously and, I suspect, intentionally poor. Deely appears incapable of writing a coherent sentence. I found that I frequently lost the meaning of his sentences by the time they finally reached their ends.
I would backtrack, rearrange the parts of the johm in my head, cut out completely unnecessary clauses and references, put what remained the little bit containing meaning into a more conventional syn This text contains interesting information, but the delivery of this information is hilariously and, I suspect, intentionally poor.
I would backtrack, rearrange the parts of the sentences in my head, cut out gasics unnecessary clauses and references, put what remained semiohics little bit containing meaning into a more conventional syntax, and have it make sense. Similarly, at some points early in the text, Deely would begin using technical terms; at first, I assumed that I had missed out on prerequisite readings to understand this text of “Basics.
He would, much later, think to define the terms, forcing the reader to either proceed without a true understanding of the earlier chapter s deelg, or go back and reread them. In one particularly awful instance, Deely begins using several common terms in contexts in which they made no sense.
Then, in a later chapter, actually toward the end, he basically says, “Oh yeah, in semiotics, those terms mean something quite different from their usual definitions.
This text is ssmiotics dense. I do not recommend it to anyone. Semiotics is fascinating, but Deely does not do it justice. I semmiotics finished one time straight through, the first third to a half a dozen times, and various selections a few more times.

This is a very, very difficult book to read, but it is the very best introduction to semiotics you will find. I would venture to guess that you cannot get to the end without this book significantly changing your view of reality. For most people, that means you won’t make it through this book.
This is not the lightweight stuff you’ll get in an advertising class. Aug 21, Jeff rated it it was amazing.
This was my introduction to the Semeiotics of Charles Peirce. A must read for anyone interested in semeiotics.
