Edited By Elize Bisanz
The volume focuses on the application of Peirce’s semeiotic as a methodological tool to establish a common field for interdisciplinary research. Contributors from the fields of biology, architecture, logic, esthetics and neuroscience, among others, work on diverse research problems, unified by the idea of transcending the dyadic limitations of disciplinary restrictions and applying Peirce’s triadic method, and the structure and process of sign relations of the particular problem that has to be solved. The result is an invigorating example of methodological plasticity wherein the reader acquires an understanding of scientific observation within the complex universe of semeiosis relations.

How Symbols grow. The Foundation of a Scientific Study of Culture
“A man denotes whatever is the object of his attention at the moment;
he connotes whatever he knows or feels of this object
and is the incarnation of this form or intelligible species;
his interpretant is the future memory of this cognition,
his future self, or another person he addresses,
or a sentence he writes, or a child he gets.”
Charles S. Peirce1
