Summary
The newcomer to semiotics is the primary intended reader of this book. Each of the authors of the various branches of semiotics open this perspective to all who want to know about semiotics, as well as to those who want to add to their knowledge of semiotics. The topics cover the major areas of semiotics and the human sciences: linguistics, theater, psychology, religion, anthropology, history, law, graphics, music, media, poetics, architecture, and a capsule overview of Charles Sanders Peirce. The individual essays develop each specialist's approach to semiotics, with full bibliography for follow-through. The introductory chapter points out the unifying themes that tie the special topics together
