    Semiotic Tools For Multilevel Cell Communication.Franco Giorgi & Gennaro Auletta - 2016 - Biosemiotics 9 (3):365-382.
    Cell communication plays a key role in multicellular organisms. In developing embryos as in adult organisms, cells communicate by coordinating their differentiation through the establishment and/or renewal of a variety of cell communication channels. Under both these conditions, cells interact by either receptor signalling, surface recognition of specific cell adhesion molecules or transfer of cytoplasmic components through junctional coupling. In recent years, it has become apparent that cells may also communicate through the extracellular release of microvesicles. They may originate as (...)

    Quantum Information as a General Paradigm.Gennaro Auletta - 2005 - Foundations of Physics 35 (5):787-815.
    Quantum–mechanical systems may be understood in terms of information. When they interact, they modify the information they carry or represent in two, and only two, ways: by selecting a part of the initial amount of (potential) information and by sharing information with other systems. As a consequence, quantum systems are informationally shielded. These features are shown to be general features of nature. In particular, it is shown that matter arises from quantum–mechanical processes through the constitution of larger ensembles that share (...)

    Quantum Information and Inferential Reasoning.Gennaro Auletta - 2005 - Foundations of Physics 35 (1):155-156.
    Information may be extracted from a quantum–mechanical system only by means of inference. For this reason, the observer, although not required as such for obtaining an eigenstate of the measured observable on a given system, is necessary for obtaining information.

    On the Physical Reality of Quantum Waves.Gennaro Auletta & Gino Tarozzi - 2004 - Foundations of Physics 34 (11):1675-1694.
    The main interpretations of the quantum-mechanical wave function are presented emphasizing how they can be divided into two ensembles: The ones that deny and the other ones that attribute a form of reality to quantum waves. It is also shown why these waves cannot be classical and must be submitted to the restriction of the complementarity principle. Applying the concept of smooth complementarity, it is shown that there can be no reason to attribute reality only to the events and not (...)

    Semiosis, Logic, and Language.Gennaro Auletta - 2005 - Croatian Journal of Philosophy 5 (1):51-69.
    Three fundamental forms of semiotic process (reference, addressing, and intentionality) are presented and their relations to language explained. After that, the fundamental inference forms (formal deduction, induction, and abduction) are presented and their connections with semiosis shown. Finally, we show some important differences between semiosis and inference, and propose to see information processing as a dynamical attractor of inference.

    From Peirce’s Semiotics to Information-Sign-Symbol.Gennaro Auletta - 2016 - Biosemiotics 9 (3):451-466.
    Peirce is the father of semiotics. However, his theory was developed long before the developments in information theory. The codification procedures studied by the latter turn out to be crucial also for biology. At the root of both information and semiosis there are equivalence classes. In the case of biological systems, we speak of functional equivalence classes. Equivalence classes represent the grid that organism impose on biochemical processes and signals of the external or internal environment. The whole feedback circuit that (...)

    Chance and Events: The Way in Which Nature Surprises Us.Gennaro Auletta & Lluc Torcal - 2014 - Biosemiotics 7 (3):335-350.
    Starting with the example of irreducible quantum events, it is shown that other kinds of events also have an element of randomness. The hallmark of “genuine” events is their irreducibility to some previous conditions. A connection between this concept and the traditional notion of contingency is explored. This concept is further brought in connection with Peirce’s Firstness. Such a notion raises the problem of how to understand causation. It seems that causes deal with individual happenings. In fact, laws are only (...)

  18. Perché la scienza è importante per la filosofia?Gennaro Auletta - 2009 - Gregorianum 90 (2):335-354.
    When dealing with the issue of the relations among science, philosophy and theology, one finds several misunderstandings. One is that natural sciences essentially offend the value of the human person. Many think that the central place of empirical data in natural sciences is in disharmony with the universal tenets of both philosophy and theology. The idea that science and philosophy are necessarily in conflict is based on a misunderstanding of both science and philosophy. The actual current paradigm shifts in natural (...)

    Nella sua straordinaria opera scientifica, Franco Selleri si è sempre opposto alla rinuncia alla comprensione della struttura della realtà e della natura degli oggetti fisici, che egli considera come l’elemento caratterizzante delle principali teorie della fisica del Novecento e che è stata stigmatizzata da Karl Popper come tesi della “fine della strada in fisica”. Sin dalla fine degli anni ’60, egli ha sviluppato quella riflessione critica nei confronti delle teorie fondamentali della fisica moderna, in particolar modo della teoria delle particelle (...)
