Texte intégral

The basic problem of a general semiotics splits into three different questions: (a) Can one approach many, and apparently different, phenomena as if they were all phenomena of signification and/or of communication? (b) Is there a unified approach able to account for all these semiotic phenomena as if they were based on the same system of rules (the notion of system not being a mere analogical one)? (c) Is this approach a ‘scientific’ one? If there is something which deserves the name of general semiotics, this something is a discoursive dealing with the questions above, and this discourse is a philosophical one.
Umberto Eco,
Semiotics and the Philosophy of Language, 1986, p. 7
