We are not born into a world. We create one from an infinity of possible worlds. The critic of institutions makes us aware of this. The seventeen essays in this volume comprise investigations into religious, philosophical, racial, gendered, literary, legal, federalist, class-based, historical, and scientific worldmaking. They semiotically inquire into the diverse contexts and contents of worldmaking which define the collective adventure of humanity.
