Abstract:

The book is the first annotated reader to focus specifically on the discipline of
zoosemiotics. Zoosemiotics can be defined today as the study of
signification, communication and representation within and across animal
species. The name for the field was proposed in 1963 by the American
semiotician Thomas A. Sebeok. He also established the framework for the
paradigm by finding and tightening connections to predecessors, describing
terminology, developing methodology and setting directions for possible
future studies.

The volume includes a wide selection of original texts accompanied by
editorial introductions. An extensive opening introduction discusses the place
of zoosemiotics among other sciences as well as its inner dimensions; the
understanding of the concept of communication in zoosemiotics, the heritage
of biologist Jakob v. Uexküll; contemporary developments in zoosemiotics
and other issues. Chapter introductions discuss the background of the
authors and selected texts, as well as other relevant texts.

The selected texts cover a wide range of topics, such as semiotic
constitution of nature, cognitive capabilities of animals, typology of animal
expression and many other issues. The roots of zoosemiotics can be traced
back to the works of David Hume and John Locke. Great emphasis is placed
on the heritage of Thomas A. Sebeok, and a total of four of his essays are
included. The Reader also includes influential studies in animal
communication (honey bee dance language, vervet monkey alarm calls) as
well as theory elaborations by Gregory Bateson and others. The reader
concludes with a section dedicated to contemporary research.
