This interdisciplinary conversation discusses the nature of language.

Book News
A collection of ten essays arguing the representational nature of language from both sides of the fence. The contributing philosophers, linguists, psychologists, and communication theorists respond to the debate that language can no longer be viewed as a system of signs or symbols, and that a post-semiotic account can be developed from the recognition that language is first a constitutive articulate contact. The essays extend the argument, frame it historically, disagree, and contextualize while touching on topics surrounding being and meaning, collaborative theory, Nietzche's theory of language, semiotics, and discourse worlds. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
