Abstract:

In his 'Letter on Humanism' of 1947, Heidegger declared that the
subject/object opposition and the terminology that accrues to it had still
not been properly addressed in the history of philosophy, and he awaited a
proper disquisition that resolved the problem. To date, that has not been
provided. This volume explains and solves the prevailing problems in the
subjectivity/objectivity couplet, in the process making an indispensable
contribution both to semiotics and to philosophy. This book shows that what
is thought to be 'objective' in the commonplace use of the term is
demonstrably different from what objectivity entails when it is revealed by
semiotic analysis. It demonstrates in its exegesis of the 'objective' that
human existence is frequently governed by examples of a 'purely objective
reality' - a fiction which nevertheless perfuses, is perfused by, and
guides experience. The ontology of the sign can be mind-dependent or
mind-independent, just as the status of relation can be as legitimate on
its own terms whether it is found in ens rationis or in ens reale. The
difference in the awareness of human animals consists in this very
contextualization that Deely's writings in general have made so evident:
the ability to identify signs as sign relations, and the ability to enact
relations on a mind-dependent basis. Purely Objective Reality offers the
first sustained and theoretically consistent interrogation of the means by
which human understanding of 'reality' will be instrumental in the survival
- or destruction - of planet Earth.
