Does Ego meet Alter — in the Global Village? A View from Cultural Semiotics

Sonesson, Göran LU (2004) In Cultural identity in transition/Identitate culturalã în transitie, Proceedings of the 1st Semotics of Culture conference, Univesitatea din Bacâu, Romania, November 1 - 4, 2001 p.95-119
Abstract
Starting out from the rather different views on Ego and Alter formulated by Peirce and Bakhtin, and, more indirectly, by Foucault, the present contribution attempts to characterise the position of these familiar philosophical personages within the framework of cultural semiotics, as it has been adapted in Lund from the models of the Prague and Tartu schools. The resulting model is tried out in a confrontation with two cultural-historical examples, one of which is well-know because it is historically attested, i.e. the conquest of America, and another one which is difficult to circumscribe, because we are in the middle of it, and it may not be much more than an ideological position, i.e. the globalised society.
