We can see many recent attempts being made, across academic disciplines, to wrestle with aspects of this question, from the philosopher Thomas Nagel's natural teleology to Jesper Hoffmeyer's biosemiotics. A more attractive and practical resolution is offered by the aforementioned Kitcher, in his excellent ...
In terms of method, it combines scientific explanations of social and cultural phenomena with hermeneutics or biosemiotics. Yet although certain people write of some great divide or schism within anthropology, it has always had, in spite of its diversity, a certain unity of vision and purpose. It employs a universal perspective ...

But it is to those insides that Alexandra Horowitz takes us to find out just how man's best friend ticks – and in the process provides a bravura demonstration of two of the most vexed concepts of biology: “biosemiotics” and “umwelt”. To call Horowitz a dog person would be a serious understatement. She is a ...
Well, I really interpret the letter you refer to in your article [“Censorpship & Upcoming Royal Society Evo Meeting“] as evidence that this IS a paradigm shift. Because it focuses not on the biological theory itself, but on social matters in academia. And this is a serious hint. Because if this kind of deep change ...
Suzan Mazur: Is biosemiotics an exact enough science at this point to be poking holes in the Modern Synthesis? Are the operational concepts developed enough? Kalevi Kull: I would say they are developed as much as linguistics can be called scientific. Once you accept linguistics as a science that with ...
But if you studied the Humanities you could appreciate a profound irony emerging, because in this same period in which the Humanities are being seen as redundant, modern science, particularly in fields such as complexity science, ecology and bio-semiotics, is revealing them to be more important than ...

If someone had taken the trouble to error-check their paper, they would have found - along with all the other errors - that the phrase should have read "exogenous biosemiotic entropy". Within the intended context, these definitions apply: exogenous - adj. A term in biology meaning: derived or developed ...
Are signs and meanings just as vital to living things as enzymes and tissues? Liz Else investigates a science in the making. EVERY so often, something shows up on the New Scientist radar that we just can't identify easily. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a brand new type of flying machine that we are going to ...
But, now, a new approach to biology (explored in bio-semiotics, cognition and developmental biology for example) embraces an ...
Considered part of biosemiotics, zoosemiotics is related to the fields of ethology and animal communication. It was developed by semiotician ...
Pima County has scheduled five public meetings this month to take further comments on a controversial greenhouse that the Monsanto ...

To give an example from my own area, biosemiotics, we are trying to understand how and why biological cells seem able to respond, as if ...

Chemicals from flame retardant-coated furniture and plastics, for example, act as biosemiotic editors to the hormone levels in our bodies, changing them in subtle but important and potentially harmful ways.
His book represents a small step that is a large leap in the emerging fields of eco-linguistics and biosemiotics, both of which, as academic disciplines, are knee-high to a grasshopper.
Far from being new age woo, this field is supported by burgeoning disciplines such as quantum physics and biosemiotics, non-linear exploration of top-down informational exchange in web-like matrices.
Biosemiotic entropy is basically the corruption of biological messages from genetics, epigenetics, proteins, cells, tissues and organs.

To give an example from my own area, biosemiotics, we are trying to understand how and why biological cells seem able to respond, as if intelligently, to environments, not just react.
