  1. Joerg R. J. Schirra & Klaus Sachs-Hombach (2013). The Anthropological Function of Pictures. In Klaus SachsHombach & Joerg R. J. Schirra (eds.), Origins of Pictures. Anthropological Discourses in Image Science. Halem. 132-159.
    There has been a long tradition of characterizing man as the animal that is capable of propositional language. However, the remarkable ability of using pictures also only belongs to human beings. Both faculties however depend conceptually on the ability to refer to absent situations by means of sign acts called 'context building'. The paper investigates the combined roles of quasi-pictorial sign acts and proto-assertive sign acts in the situation of initial context building, which, in the context of “concept-genetic” considerations, aims (...)

  3. Jörg R. J. Schirra & Klaus Sachs-Hombach (2010). Homo Pictor and the Linguistic Turn: Revisiting Hans Jonas' Picture Anthropology. Linguistic and Philosophical Investigations 9:144–181.
    There has been a long tradition of characterizing man as the animal that talks. However, the remarkable ability of using pictures also only belongs to human beings, after all we know empirically so far. Are there conceptual reasons for that coincidence? The paper is dedicated to a philosophical programme of “concept-genetic” considerations dealing in particular with the dependencies between those two abilities: The conceptual relation between the competence to use assertive language and the faculty of employing pictures must be conceived (...)

  5. Jörg R. J. Schirra & Klaus Sachs-Hombach (2007). To Show and to Say: Comparing the Uses of Pictures and Language. Studies in Communication Sciences 7 (2):35–62.
    There has been a long tradition of characterizing man as the animal that talks. However, the remarkable ability of using pictures also only belongs to human beings, after all we know empirically so far. Are there conceptual reasons for that coincidence? Such a question belongs to the philosophy of language just as well as to philosophical visualistics. Comparing the two abilities to use words or pictures yields several similarities as well as distinctions. A well-known conceptual disparity between pictures and words (...)

  6. Jörg R. J. Schirra & Klaus Sachs-Hombach (2006). Fähigkeiten zum Bild- und Sprachgebrauch. Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 54 (6):887-905.
    There is a long tradition of characterizing man as the talking animal. However, the remarkable ability of using pictures also belongs to human beings, after all we know empirically so far. Are there conceptual reasons for that coincidence? Such a question belongs to the general science of language (linguistics) and philosophy of language just as well as to general visualistics (image science) - a discipline just emancipating itself from art history. We here take the visualistics point of view. A first (...)
