Summary
"We are disparate beings made up of multiple forces. We are isolate and interactional, social and biological; we are forms of thought and thoughts are forms of energy. We are as variable as the gods who so easily transform themselves into multiple images and live their lives within the semiosis of duplicity and variation. But unlike the gods we are mortal and finite. Out of this very specificity of the mortality of our experiences have come signs, the basis not merely of thought but of existence. It is through signs and the logic and order they bring with them, signs whose nature is far broader than envisaged by Prometheus who gave them to us, that we exist. It is hoped that this book can be used to broaden our use of signs and semiosis."--Jacket
