Cognitive semiotics: an emerging field for the transdisciplinary study of meaning

Zlatev, Jordan LU (2012) In The Public Journal of Semiotics IV(1). p.2-24

The combination of the following features distinguishes it from other synthetic approaches: (a) integration of theoretical and empirical research; (b) ontological pluralism and methodological triangulation; (c) influence of phenomenology; (d) focus on dynamism and (e) the ambition of true transdisciplinarity. The ultimate goal of Cognitive Semiotics is to provide new insights into the nature and culture of human beings, as well as other meaning-making... (More)
