“Objective Reality and the Physical World: Relation as Key to Understanding Semiosis” — John Deely

 

| Open Player in New Window

John Deely, of St. Thomas University in Houston, gives a presentation as part of the University of Oregon Conference on Biosemiotics and Culture. This conference, organized by Visiting Professor Wendy Wheeler and Molly Westling, focuses on the cultural dimensions of this new interdisciplinary field that explores meaningful relationships and communication throughout the living world. This communication includes the whole range of behaviors from intracellular code exchanges to interspecies communication and human language and culture. This new field has enormous potential for reintegrating cultural studies with the life sciences and opening new perspectives on the evolution of language and the arts. “Biosemiotics and Culture” will be the first such conference in the United States.

Deely stepped in to give this lecture in place of Stuart Kauffman, who was unable to attend.
