    On Production and Use of Tokens of I.Maciej Głowacki - 2021 - Studia Semiotyczne 35 (1):95-106.
    In this paper, I analyze the semantics of the first person pronoun “I” from the perspective of the user/producer distinction. In the first part of the paper, I describe the Simple View and propose three interpretations of its thesis. In the second part, I analyze the notions of use and production of a linguistic token. In the next part, I show that all of the interpretations of SV are sensitive to counterexamples. In the end, I discuss possible answers of the (...)

  2. Review of Paweł Grabarczyk’s Directival Theory of Meaning: From Syntax and Pragmatics to Narrow Linguistic Content. [REVIEW]Antonina Jamrozik - 2021 - Studia Semiotyczne 35 (1):107-118.
    This paper is a review of Paweł Grabarczyk’s latest book, Directival Theory of Meaning: From Syntax and Pragmatics to Narrow Linguistic Content. I focus mostly on two concepts constitutive for the directival theory of meaning—that of linguistic trial and that of meaning directive. These two concepts, while ingeniously developed by Grabarczyk, are not free of problems and somewhat controversial assumptions. I start with describing the basis of Grabarczyk’s proposal, as well as of the historical background from which it originated. Then, (...)

    Consciousness, Subjectivity, and Gradedness.Jakub Jonkisz - 2021 - Studia Semiotyczne 35 (1):9-34.
    The article suggests answers to the questions of how we can arrive at an unambiguous characterization of consciousness, whether conscious states are coextensive with subjective ones, and whether consciousness can be graded and multidimensional at the same time. As regards the first, it is argued that a general characterization of consciousness should be based on its four dimensions: i.e., the phenomenological, semantic, physiological and functional ones. With respect to the second, it is argued that all informational states of a given (...)

    The Analog-Digital Distinction Fails to Explain the Perception-Thought Distinction: An Alternative Account of the Format of Mental Representation.Piotr Kozak - 2021 - Studia Semiotyczne 35 (1):73-94.
    The format of mental representation is the way information is organized in the mind. The discussion surrounding the format of representation addresses the problem of what representational primitives are and the rules of information processing. In philosophy, the discussion is dominated by the distinction between analog and digital representational systems. It is thought that this distinction can bring us closer to an understanding of the nature of perceptual and discursive representations. I argue that the analog-digital distinction cannot meet that expectation. (...)

  5. Introduction: Many Faces of Representationalism.Zbysław Muszyński - 2021 - Studia Semiotyczne 35 (1):5-8.
    The subject matter of all texts comprising this volume is a category of representation. Although it is not always explicit, the reference to the notion of representation enables to bring together shared characteristics of research into consciousness, enhancement of cognitive processes, metaphor and modes of coding of information in the mind.

    Metaphor in Semiotics: Foundations, Embodiments, Analysis.Mariam Araratovna Sargsyan - 2021 - Studia Semiotyczne 35 (1):55-72.
    A metaphor within the framework of semiotics can be embodied in various semiotic systems, which is a prerequisite for a multilateral, in-depth analysis of its generation and interpretation. The purpose of the article is the conceptualisation of metaphor in the framework of semiotics and analysis using methods of analogy and transference. One of the main problems of metaphor theory is to provide means to represent the process of metaphor generation for understanding the nature of the phenomenon. The use of the (...)

  7. Knower at Risk: Updating Epistemology in the Light of Enhanced Representations.Barbara Tomczyk - 2021 - Studia Semiotyczne 35 (1):35-54.
    The epistemological consequences of the increasing popularity of artificial cognitive enhancements are still confined to the margins of philosophical exploration, with priority given instead to ethical problems requiring urgent practical solutions. In this paper, I examine the less popular, yet still important, problem of the threats to which the very knowledge-forming process is exposed when its subject uses artificial cognitive enhancers. The theory of knowledge I call upon is borrowed from virtue epistemologists who, together with proponents of active externalism, seek (...)
