Abstract:

Giambattista Vico considered his greatest philosophical achievement to
be his discovery that early humans spoke in 'poetic
characters'. Vico's New Science is thus also a philosophy of signs or
semata. Jurgen Trabant reads the profound insights into human semiosis
contained in Vico's 'sematology' as both a spirited rejection of
Cartesian philosophy and an early critique of enlightened
logocentricism. Sean Ward's translation makes this work available to
an English-reading audience for the first time.
