Semiosis in Hindustani Music

Original Synopsis

"Semiosis in Hindustani Music has a total of 396 pages which are papers from writer 'José Luiz Martinez'. For thousands of years music in India has been considered a signifying art. Indian music creates and represents meanings of all kings, some of which extend outwardly to the cosmos, while others arise inwardly, in the refined feelings which a musical connoisseur experiences when listening to it. In this book the author explores signification in Hindustani classical music along a two-fold path. Martineq first constructs a theory of musical semiotics based on the sign-theories of Charles Sanders Peirce. He then applies his theory to the analysis of various types of Hindustani music and how they generate significations. The author engages such fundamental issues as sound quality, raga, tala and form, while advancing his unique interpretations of well-known semiotic phenomena like iconicity, metalanguage, indexicality, symbolism, Martinez`s study also provides deep insight into semiotic issues of musical perception, performance, scholarship, and composition. An specially innovative and extensive section of the book analyzes representations in Hindustani music in terms of the Indian aesthetic theory of rasa. The evolution of the rasa system as applied to musical structures is traced historically and analyzed semiotically. In the light of Martinez`s theories, Hindustani music reveals itself to be both a delightfully sensuous and highly sophisticated system of acoustic representations. 2001-01-01 time of publication of the book, [-Motilal Banarsidass Publ.-]"

Semiosis in the Postmodern Age

Original Synopsis

"Semiosis in the Postmodern Age has a total of 374 pages which are papers from writer 'Floyd Merrell'. Merrell's specific focus in this interdisciplinary study is the modernism/postmodernism dichotomy and Peirce's precocious realization that the world does not lend itself to the simplistic binarism of modernist thought. In Merrell's examination of postmodern phenomena, the reader is taken through various facets of the cognitive sciences, philosophy of science, mathematics, and literary theory. Throughout this work, Merrell. is scrupulously aware that we are participants within, not detached spectators of, our signs. We understand them while we interact with them, during which process we, and our signs as well, invariably undergo change. 1995 time of publication of the book, [-Purdue University Press-]"

Semiosis and Catastrophes

Original Synopsis

"Semiosis and Catastrophes has a total of 185 pages which are papers from writer 'Wolfgang Wildgen, Per Aage Brandt'. The French mathematician Rene Thom (Fields medal 1958) died in 2002. In this volume his contributions to biology, semiotics and linguistics are discussed by a group of scholars who have continued his work and have shaped the new paradigm of dynamic semiotics and linguistics. Thom's heritage is full of revolutionary ideas and deep insights which stem from a rich intuition and a sharp awareness of the current state of the sciences, including their potentials and risks. The contributions to this volume are elaborations of papers given at a colloquium at the International Center for Semiotics and Linguistics of the University of Urbino (Italy), in 2005. The central concern of this volume is semiogenesis, i.e. the evolution and differentiation of meaningful (-pregnant-) forms in the field of symbolic systems - from bio-communication to language and cultural forms like music, art, architecture or urban forms. The basic questions are: How are meanings created and further differentiated? Where do they come from? What kind of forces drive their unfolding? How can complex cultural forms be understood based on simple morphodynamic principles? Applications concern the perception of forms by animals and humans, the categorization of forms e.g. in a lexicon, and predication or other complex symbolic behaviors which show up in grammar or in cultural artifacts like the unfolding of urban centers." 2010 time of publication of the book, [-Peter Lang-]"

Genes, Information, and Semiosis

Original Synopsis

"Genes, Information, and Semiosis has a total of 252 pages which are papers from writer 'Charbel Niño El-Hani, João Queiroz, Claus Emmeche'. "Up to the middle of the 20th century, biologists studied genes without seeing them as informational structures; information theory was an engineering tool not dealing with the meaning of messages; and, semiotics, the study of signs and their meaning, dealt only with human culture. Today - after progress in molecular biology and a naturalist turn in general semiotics - researchers are beginning to realize that genes, information and semiosis, or sign action, can no longer be understood in isolation. This insight derives from a new scientific field. Biosemiotics investigates the meaning, interpretation, communication, and habit formation of living systems, and the biochemical conditions for sign action. This book clarifies the information talk in molecular and systems biology by building a semiotic model of genes and protein synthesis. It is consistent with the best scientific understanding, and it is non-reductionist, integrating signs, molecules, and natural interpretation. It offers a new definition of gene in biology, and an understanding of information that does not reduce it to digital bits, but sees it as related to the forms and processes of living organisms. Readers not familiar with molecular biology or semiotics are provided with brief introductions to basic concepts. The book is a challenge to entrenched beliefs in the anthropic nature of signs and the substantial nature of genes. No scientific revolutions are offered, but a set of deeper insights into an exciting, new cross disciplinary perspective upon life and signs"--Publisher description. 2009 time of publication of the book, [--]"

Multimodality and Social Semiosis

Original Synopsis

"Multimodality and Social Semiosis has a total of 314 pages which are papers from writer 'Margit Böck, Norbert Pachler'. Gunther Kress, one of the founders of social semiotics and multimodality, has made lasting contributions to these fields through his work in semiotics and meaning-making; power and identity; agency, design, production; and pedagogy and learning; in varied sites of transformation. This book brings together leading scholars in a variety of disciplines, including social semiotics, pedagogy, linguistics, media and communication studies, new literacy studies, ethnography, academic literacy, literary criticism and, more recently, medical/clinical education, to examine and build upon his work. This disciplinary diversity is evidence of the ways in which Kress' work has influenced and been influenced by a wide range of academic work and intellectual endeavors and how it has been used to lay foundations for theory-building and concept development in a varied yet connected range of areas. The individual contributions to the book pick up the threads of the often collaborative work of the authors with Kress; they show how these approaches were subsequently developed and discuss what future trajectories the authors see for them. 2013-07-24 time of publication of the book, [-Routledge-]"

Mathematics education research routinely receives the attention of educators, mathematicians, linguists, psychologists, anthropologists, and others. In this volume, the induction of students into mathematical meaning-making is studied through the prism of these several disciplines.

Deictic Imaginings: Semiosis at Work and at Play

Original Synopsis

"Deictic Imaginings: Semiosis at Work and at Play has a total of 190 pages which are papers from writer 'Donna E. West'. This work represents the first integrated account of how deixis operates to facilitate points of view, providing the raw material for reconciling index and object. The book offers a fresh, applied philosophical approach using original empirical evidence to show that deictic demonstratives hasten the recognition of core representational constructs. It presents a case where the comprehension of shifting points of view by means of deixis is paramount to a theory of mind and to a worldview that incorporates human components of discovering and extending spatial knowledge. The book supports Peirce’s triadic sign theory as a more adequate explanatory account compared with those of Bühler and Piaget. Peirce’s unitary approach underscores the artificiality of constructing a worldview driven by logical reasoning alone; it highlights the importance of self-regulation and the appreciation of otherness within a sociocultural milieu. Integral to this semiotic perspective is imagination as a primary tool for situating the self in constructed realities, thus infusing reality with new possibilities. Imagination is likewise necessary to establish postures of mind for the self and others. Within these imaginative scenarios (consisting of overt, and then covert self dialogue) children construct their own worldviews, through linguistic role-taking, as they legitimize conflicting viewpoints within imagined spatial frameworks. 2013-08-05 time of publication of the book, [-Springer Science & Business Media-]"

Original Synopsis

"Semiotics of Law: Intent and Preparation with in a Semiosis Cycle has a total of 13 pages which are papers from writer 'Pedro Malodorus Diaz'. Essay from the year 2010 in the subject Law - Philosophy, History and Sociology of Law, The University of Texas at El Paso, language: English, abstract: This paper examines the legal impossibility that exists when Law Enforcement introduces evidence of a violation of law. Where Law enforcement creates hyper-real entities and uses these entities as actual real victims to prosecute cases involving computer crimes. The courts, prosecutors and juries fail to understand that a symbolic character across the computational medium, the umwelt is not and cannot ever become real simply because law enforcement claims so. Reality can only exist within the realm where we as humans exist. Hyper-reality remains at a realm that only our minds can imagine. The umwelt is that area that buffers reality from hyper-reality. Television exemplifies this argument, a person watching television can only become so involved with his/her favorite show and no matter how involved the person is - it can never cross that medium that separates them from that show. The Hypothetical Detective claiming to have understood the intentions of the suspect across that medium is only deceiving himself. Umberto Eco has been quoted as saying...”The battle for survival as a responsible human in the communication era is not to be won where communication begins, but where it ends. When Law enforcement takes it upon itself to ensnare an individual and fails to define full intent and preparation within the semiosis cycle it becomes a legal impossibility. 2012-11-21 time of publication of the book, [-GRIN Verlag-]"

Architectonics of Semiosis

Original Synopsis

"Architectonics of Semiosis has a total of 202 pages which are papers from writer 'Edwina Taborsky'. Societies are understood as architectures for the systematic transformation of energy into information/matter, and, using this hypothesis, are examined within two architectural frames--that of the unilevel and the bilevel society. Architectonics of Semiosis lifts semiotics from its literary-linguistic sphere and expands biophysics from a materialist focus to explore the interrelationships of these two forces of organization within the evolving complexities of sociocognitive forms of order. The conflicts and resolutions between the differential goals of the group's recursive metanarrative and the individual's emergent freedoms of choice are explored as natural aspects of a lyric-poetic evolution of the complexity of energy as operative within sociocognitive forms of reality. This interdisciplinary work offers original examinations of societies as complex codifications of energy, and of human beings as integrated aspects of larger and more complex codifications of energy. 1998 time of publication of the book, [-Macmillan-]"

Mediating Ideology in Text and Image

Original Synopsis

"Mediating Ideology in Text and Image has a total of 254 pages which are papers from writer 'Inger Lassen, Jeanne Strunck, Torben Vestergaard'. While ideology has been treated widely in CDA-literature, the role played by the interaction of text and image in multiplying meaning and furthering ideological stances has not so far received a lot of attention. Mediating Ideology in Text and Image offers a number of approaches to such analysis, offering students and academics valuable tools for identifying possible discrepancies between the world and the way it is represented through various mediational means. The authors' common aim is one of assisting the audience in reading between the lines, thus offering a variety of approaches that may contribute to a better understanding of how ideologies possibly work and how they may be denaturalised from text and image. The articles in part I look at rhetorical strategies used in meaning construction processes unfolding in various kinds of mass media. Part II focuses on the re-semiotization of meaning and looks at how analysing the combination of text and image may contribute to a better understanding of ideological processes brought about by multimodal resources.

Semiosis, Marginal Signs and Trickster

"Semiosis, Marginal Signs and Trickster has a total of 232 pages which are papers from writer 'C.W. Spinks'. As signifying creatures, we fear the false creation 'signifying nothing' because, like Macbeth, we think of them as daggers of the mind that raise questions about the reality of our signs, about signs as tools of creation and power, about the dark terrors (and lighter joys) that exist in human desire, and about the signs and the mind. This text argues that signs are, at base, generative things creating as much as they refer. 2016-07-27 time of publication of the book, [-Springer-]"
