    Another Page for “Between the Sheets”.Myrdene Anderson - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):229-239.
    Among John Deely’s many gifts to the Semiotic Society of America, perhaps his greatest is the SSA Style Sheet and its mandate for “historical layering”. Here I provide further reflection on some aspects of the art, craft, and science of bibliography, commemorating Deely and resuscitating the torturous birth of the SSA Style Sheet. I then summarize Deely’s compulsive defense of “historical layering” and relate his final amendment to the Style Sheet.

    Pragmaticism, Science, and Theology or How to Answer the Riddle of the Sphinx?Søren Brier - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):131-161.
    This text is written in the honor of my scholarly friend John Deely, discussing the claims regarding the relation of modern science and religion put forth in Ashley and Deely, How Science Enriches Theology. I view it as the confrontation of a Peircean and a Thomist philosophical view of modern science and its relation to religion. I argue that the book demonstrates the problems inherent in the dialogue between a Thomist theist and a Peircean panentheist process view. Furthermore, that they (...)

  3. Human Understanding.Paul Cobley - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):17-38.
    John Deely’s contributions to the philosophy of signs have transformed semiotics. Key to this development has been Deely’s concern not just with human-produced texts but, instead, with human understanding amidst the context of semiosis in general, including realms beyond that of the human. Underpinning this concern, in turn, is his triad of sign, object and thing: A definite re-orientation of the theory of the sign. In this article it will be suggested that the triad, exemplifying suprasubjectivity and the primacy of (...)

    Elaboration of the Intellectual Sign.Brian Kemple - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):87-130.
    Human beings cannot bear very much discontinuity: we innately desire resolution of our experiences, no matter how disparate they are from one another, into a common whole, into a life which “makes sense.” We desire to be persons with identities resolved into coherent wholes. But the socio-cultural world of everyday activity often presents a fragmentary and irresoluble array of experience which seemingly prevents this resolution. At the root of this fragmentation is not, however, the experiences themselves, but rather a lack (...)

  8. With John Deely in Semio-Philosophical Research.Susan Petrilli & Augusto Ponzio - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):163-187.
    John Deely’s contribution to semiotics can be synthetically framed in the formula “Versus fallaciam ‘pars pro toto’”. This is an approach he theorized and practiced in close association with Thomas A. Sebeok’s global semiotics, Deely being one of the latter’s major promotors and disseminators. All his monographs, whether books or essays, have contributed to the development of semiotics in this sense, both on a historical level, think of his translation of Poinsot’s work, and on the theoretical. Semiotics for Deely is (...)

    Imaginary Dialogue with John Deely.Farouk Y. Seif - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):189-227.
    We live in a world of fact and a world of fancy, in the Peircean sense, telling real and imagined stories. In this Imaginary Dialogue with John Deely I compose narratives that integrate actual quotations from his seminal work and imaginative interpretation of our numerous conversations that took place over the years. Visiting John in May 2016 at the Latrobe Hospital and grieving his passing on January 7, 2017 were two cathartic and emancipating experiences that developed into this dialogical narrative (...)

  10. Meaning Redefined.Göran Sonesson - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):65-86.
    From the point of view of semiotics, the essential contribution of John Deely consists in having made us all aware of the richness of the Scholastic heritage, and to have explained it to us latter-day semioticians. Even for those, who, like the present author, think that semiotics was alive and well between the dawn of the Latin Age, and the rediscovery of Scholastic realism by Peirce, the notions coined by the Scholastic philosophers are intriguing. To make sense of scholastic notions (...)

    John Deely’s Influence on Prague Semiotics.Martin Švantner & Michal Karľa - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):241-247.
    In this paper, we give account of how the present shift in thought of the Prague School of Semiotics towards the history of semiotics has been initiated and shaped by the ideas of John Deely. We discuss how works of John Deely were “discovered” in Prague, and how they found their way into our scholarly work and curriculum. We concentrate on the two Deely’s ideas which influenced us the most: his method of the “archaeology of concepts” applicable to the study (...)

  12. Deely’s Extension of Peirce’s Thirdness.Donna E. West - 2018 - American Journal of Semiotics 34 (1):39-64.
    According to Deely, Peirce’s renovation of Saussure’s semiology to create his division of signs was far-reaching; it incorporates their use within non-living systems. Deely’s rationale is founded upon consideration of Peirce’s concept of individual/the continuum, and reality/existence. Deely’s argument proceeds as follows: it is not uniqueness or unique conscious reflection which qualifies sign use, but the habits to which animate and inanimate systems become subject. In posing his argument, Deely draws upon Krampen’s claim that signs permeate the plant world, in (...)
