    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1987; US$ 165.00

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1990; US$ 240.00

    La classification des signes de C.S. Peirce en icones, indices et symboles est universellement reconnue. Est-ce le resultat d'une heureuse rencontre ou la preuve de la pertinence du système de pensée qui l'a produite? Est-ce l'absence d'une présentation scientifique de la sémiotique de Peirce qui autorise cette interrogation? Cet... more...

  • Charles S. Peirce's Method of Methodsby Roberta Kevelson

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1987; US$ 165.00

    In all disciplines there are specifiable basic concepts, our universes of discourse, which define special areas of inquiry.

  • Paris School Semioticsby Paul Perron; Frank Collins

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1989; US$ 150.00

    It has often been claimed that the aim of semiotics is to establish a general theory of systems of signification.

If, for certain semioticians, the sign is first of all an observable... more...
