Recent debates surrounding the teaching of biology divide participants into three camps based on how they explain the appearance of the human race: Biosemiotics discovers an intriguing higher ground respecting those opposing theories by arguing that questions of meaning and experiential life can be integrated into the scientific study of nature. This groundbreaking book shows how the linguistic powers of humans imply that consciousness emerges in the evolutionary process and that life is based on sign action, not just molecular interaction.
Biosemiotics will be essential reading for anyone interested in the nexus of linguistic possibility and biological reality. Read more Read less. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. Add both to Cart Add both to List. One of these items ships sooner than the other.

Hoffmeyer’s prose is engaging, his arguments are thought-provoking, and most of his examples are illustrative. This book does not require a background in either semiotics or biology to understand.
Note that Hoffmeyer’s view follows the Copenhagen-Tartu school of biosemiotics with its firm commitment to the insights provided by the triadic sign theory of American philosopher Charles S.
Other biosemioticians follow dyadic models based on the semiology of Ferdinand de Saussure. Hoffmeyer makes compelling arguments to justify the triadic model.
