Title: Entangling Forms
Subtitle: Within Semiosic Processes
Written By: Floyd Merrell
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110245578-1
Series Title: Semiotics, Communication and Cognition 5
Description:

The volume draws from Charles S. Peirce's pragmatic philosophy, as well as
from diverse areas in contemporary arts and sciences, and certain facets of
Buddhist philosophy – especially regarding notions of "interconnectedness",
"self-organization", and "co-participation" of the knowing subject with her
inner world, her socio-cultural world, and her physical environment.
"Contradictory", "complementary", and "coalescence" are also fundamental
watchwords, in addition to "entanglement". 'Contradictory', since
conflicts, clashes and inconsistencies there will always be, in spite
attempts to resolve them. 'Complementarity', since poles of opposition can
at least provisionally be resolved by mediation and moderation, however
vaguely and ambiguously, such that consonance might emerge from
dissonance, balance from imbalance, and accord from discord. And
'coalescence', since the union of disparities is an ongoing, and always
incomplete, process; it is never fixed product. These concepts, along with
the key word, "entanglement", place Peirce in a new light, giving rise to new
questions and possible responses from readers who are searching for
alternate means of understanding in our increasingly complex, rapidly
globalizing world.
