It was published by Borgen, in Copenaghen, under the title Strukturel Semantik.

Most entries begin with the etymology greijas the word — whether it comes from a Latin root or has its origin in the Greek language, followed by the definition or description, which forms the nucleus of the research.

In any case, those who partake in the semiotic endeavor must implicitly or explicitly subscribe to this ontological ideology; otherwise they would not be semioticians.

That has been the fault of certain trends of generative semiotics, when they adhered to the principle of immanence so strictly that they became oblivious of the surface, and of the indispensable feedback that it provides for the falsification of interpretative hypotheses. In the squared of veridiction, that is the position of secret, which is also fundamentally the position of semiotics.

A topology is intrinsic to the idea of sign. Semiotics believes that meaning is not at the surface of reality, but hidden in hreimas depths. However, merciless critique of structuralist universalism on the one hand brought about the progressive colonization of social sciences and humanities by hardcore scientific reductionism; on the other hand, it opened the gate to all sort of conspiracy thought and shameless revisionism.

Music, Metre, Singing, Declamation; Indeed, if what appears is what is, and what is what appears, why should the very idea of the sign be entertained? Yet, they also claim, differently from semioticians, that appearance is not a reliable channel to meaning.

Other artists of the theater, with two divisions Nomenclature, Related Adjectives ; 6. Later on, this trust in rationality, inter-subjective transparence, and universalism inexorably dwindled.

In the semiotic square of veridiction, such is the position of lie.

The translation appeared by Vieweg Verlag in Braunschweig, an old and prestigious publisher specialized in the publication of the writings of great scientists like Albert Einstein and Max Planck.


Paradoxically, the US audience became familiar with deconstructionism before knowing structuralism, and knew structuralism only as a post-deconstructionist, post-structuralist wave. It is also the ontological ideology of the so-called conspiracy theories. Obviously this is a dictionary and the entries are organized from A to Z, but they are of varying length — some much longer than others — and also of varied content, depending on the perspective chosen for explaining each word.

Two further alternative ontological ideologies distinguish, on the contrary, between being and appearance, between a dimension of reality that is readily accessible and one that is hidden beneath. Indeed, this first title is followed by a secondary title, that in French reads: The bibliography is extensive, but, due to the date of publication, does not include books or articles after In Decemberthe journal Modern Languages Notes published a lucid review of this English translation.

Some of them concern the structure of the taxonomy, for instance, the way in which different types of hermeneutic discourse can be placed in the frame. It seems to me that an index locorum listing all these sources would have been helpful.

Other ontological ideologies are, indeed, possible, but all nullify the semiotic perspective. In order to retrace the seismography of ideas, details semantkca the history of their publishing are extremely telling; Rizzoli was, and still is, one of the most prestigious Italian publishers.

Workers related to the theater, with two divisions Directly related to the actors and Others ; 4.

Semiotics does not deal with ontologies, but is nevertheless shaped by a certain way of imagining the being, what is. Semiotic theories are falsifiable because they trust the appearance of the signifier and work with it through a rational methodology. Other semiotic theories can operate differently, and falsify the first ones, exactly insofar as they both trust and work with the same signifying materials.

A dim consequence of the marginalization of any rational ambition in the humanities is that neo-positivism is still unable to tackle, let alone answer, the social demand for knowledge about meaning; simultaneously, conspiracy theories continue to muddy the waters of public discourse, giving the impression that no rational way exists to choose among competing hermeneutics.

It is the typical attitude of scientific reductionism and of all the anti-hermeneutic stands that proliferate in contemporary mass culture: Theater is seen as a complete process of communication, beginning with the dramatist and ending with the spectators and their reactions. Sherlock Holmes is its hero. Such a general overview would have been useful in the introduction, not only to guide the reader to preliminary and fundamental notions of the theatrical phenomena, but also to motivate them to consult and explore the vast material and the different approaches to the subjects discussed.


There is no way, and no necessity, to go beyond appearance, because the signifier is the signified, the expression is the content, and reality manifests itself through itself, as a language made by referents.

It is the ontological ideology that often manifests itself in the attitude of the mass toward semiotics, and increasingly thus also in the candid reactions of undergraduate students towards the discipline: Such ontological ideology is unconceivable from the point of view of semiotics, yet is embraced by gerimas trends of the current scientific discourse.

The following diagram offers a visual summary of the tensions that agitate the taxonomy of ontological ideologies: The proprioception of space is a major matrix of cognitive and conceptual metaphors. The English translation appeared in Lincoln by University of Nebraska Press, a fine publisher that nevertheless does not compete with the giants of US academic publishing.

William of Baskerville in The Name of the Rose still is a semiotician, although heavily resorting to abduction; yet, Robert Langdon in The Da Vinci Code is not a semiotician any more but a conspiracy theorist.
