"... an excellent collection reflecting the ever-widening appeal and potential of Peirce's logic of signs."  · Peirce Project Newsletter

"To anyone interested in the cognitive bases of language and/or the theoretical foundations of linguistics, this book has a great deal to offer."  · Language

Since the modern founding of the theory of signs by the American philosopher-scientist Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914), the field of semiotics has become increasingly prominent as a method of interdisciplinary research and study, bridging the humanities, the fine arts, and the natural and social sciences. It is also truly international, with faculty representation at many universities, research institutes, and scholarly societies throughout the world. These two volumes reflect the continuing appeal of Peirce's sign theory bringing together as they do a great variety of authors from all over the world whose aim is to set the stage for a productive collaboration among linguists and cognitive scientists.
