Semiotics, Lotman, Peirce and You: Can We Really Combine Such Different Approaches?

  • This presentation will attempt to tackle in (very) general lines the tenets of Lotmanian and Peircean semiotics, observing their possible intersections and interactions as well as their theoretical incompatibilities. As history would have it, both traditions stem from different roots, and their playing along cannot be taken for granted. In examining these historical roots in light of the naturalizing project of current semiotics, we can hope to find some points to connect both sides, even if not everything will work within the same machinery. It will be argued that biosemiotics offers the most productive prospect moving forward.
