Semiotics as a general intellectual movement has often lacked a specific focus that would enable an "outsider" to see where the plethora of proposed methods and claimed insights are coming from. This text aims to resolve this problem by showing that semiotics in general is a particular development of the action of signs in one specific region of life, namely, that occupied by the human species. By exploring in detail the requirements for such sign usage, Deely provides a semiotic framework for the human sciences in general and anthropology in particular. He sheds new light on the requirements of epistemology, including the question of the origin of language.

In the span of a decade, Professor Deely has produced three major works which have singly and together systematically amplified and deepened our knowledge of the intriguing world of signs, particularly in humanity's service. In this third, summative book of the trio-so lucidly argued as to insure accessibility for one and all-he once again puts his immense erudition to excellent practical use. -- Thomas A. Sebeok, Research Center for Language and Semiotic Studies An impressive synthesis of semiotics and anthropology which puts human experience in a new light. Deely gives us the foundation for a new paradigm for anthropology. -- Nathan Houser, Peirce Edition Project John Deely's magisterial treatise accomplishes nothing less than the construction of the foundations for semiotic philosophical anthropology in the tradition of Poinsot and Peirce. -- Richard J. Parmentier, Brandeis University John Deely has produced a treatise, at once formidable and formal, that seeks to incorporate the anthropological endeavor into the theoretical canon of semiotics as he has developed and advocated it through a compendious series of historically grounded studies. Perhaps of most interest to anthropologists will be his insistence that the semiotic recognition of an 'objective' world does not necessarily commit the analyst to naive strategies of interpretation. This book offers a distinctive philosophical defense of the logic of anthropological practice. -- Michael Herzfeld, Harvard University; author of Cultural Intimacy: Social Poetics in the Nation-State
