    The Indispensable Excess of the Aesthetic: Evolution of Sensibility in Nature.Katya Mandoki - 2015 - Lanham: Lexington Books.
    This book offers a compelling account of the evolution of sensibility, weaving together Darwinian and biosemiotic theory. It works along non-anthropomorphic aesthetics of the appreciation and creation of beauty in nature as an end in itself which has practical benefit.

  2. Philosophy and Geography Iii: Philosophies of Place.Philip Brey, Lee Caragata, James Dickinson, David Glidden, Sara Gottlieb, Bruce Hannon, Ian Howard, Jeff Malpas, Katya Mandoki, Jonathan Maskit, Bryan G. Norton, Roger Paden, David Roberts, Holmes Rolston Iii, Izhak Schnell, Jonathon M. Smith, David Wasserman & Mick Womersley (eds.) - 1998 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    A growing literature testifies to the persistence of place as an incorrigible aspect of human experience, identity, and morality. Place is a common ground for thought and action, a community of experienced particulars that avoids solipsism and universalism. It draws us into the philosophy of the ordinary, into familiarity as a form of knowledge, into the wisdom of proximity. Each of these essays offers a philosophy of place, and reminds us that such philosophies ultimately decide how we make, use, and (...)

    Zoo-aesthetics: A natural step after Darwin.Katya Mandoki - 2014 - Semiotica 2014 (198):61-91.
    As a category, poiesis can be extended beyond the standard anthropocentric use and applied across three radically different scales: auto-poiesis in everyday self-organization of every living creature, phylo-poiesis in the shaping of a species by sexual selection across various generations and onto-poiesis as an individual's development of formal skills and creative modification of its environment. In this paper, I apply these distinctions and argue, following Darwin and Sebeok, for the possibility of considering poietic and aesthetic manifestations among various animal species (...)

    The Evolution of Aesthesis.Katya Mandoki - 2013 - Rivista di Estetica 54:117-133.
    Based on the understanding of aesthetics as the study of all processes and activities related to aesthesis in his original etymological sense as «sensibility», this paper argues that an evolutionary approach must follow the evolution of aesthesis from its inception. A degree of sensibility may perhaps be traced already at molecules sensing borders in DNA replication. The next stage, which may be defined as “cyto-aesthesis”, refers to evidence of cells’ actions to antigens, virus, enzymes or bacteria and other significant elements (...)

    Aesthetics and pragmatics.Katya Mandoki - 1999 - Pragmatics and Cognition 7 (2):313-337.
    Illocutionary force may be qualified according to Aristotle's classical triadic distinction of logos as a degree of verity, ethos as a degree of credibility or authority and pathos as eloquence or passional intensity. Jakobson 's model of linguistic functions can be understood as operating performatively with greater advantages to pragmatic theory than Searle and Vanderveken's taxonomy of illocutionary acts. Consequently, these three dimensions can also be found in the aesthetic as in other linguistic functions proposed by Jakobson when examined from (...)

    Estética cotidiana y juegos de la cultura: prosaica l.Katya Mandoki - 2008 - [México]: Siglo Veintiuno Editores.
    La tesis central de este libro es que no sólo es posible sino indispensable abrir los estudios estéticos –tradicionalmente restringidos al arte y lo bello– hacia la riqueza y complejidad de la vida social contemporánea. Eso es precisamente la Prosaica: la estética en la vida cotidiana. La autora actualiza las discusiones en torno a la estética, rescatando particularmente la filosofía de Dewey y Bajtín para proyectarlas hacia un enfoque interdisciplinario. A partir de Huizinga y la taxonomía de los juegos de (...)

  18. Practicas estéticas e identidades sociales: prosaica II.Katya Mandoki - 2006 - México: Siglo XXI.
    Desde una perspectiva matricial de la cultura, la autora aborda el estudio de las identidades sociales en su dimensión estética. La presentación dramatúrgica de la persona propuesta por Goffman adquiere un perfil más concreto al enfocar a las identidades a partir de sus procesos de gestación y proyección, pues nunca brotan en el vacío sino a través de matrices que ineludiblemente las conforman. Mandoki explora identidades colectivas religiosas como la cristiana, la musulmana y la judía, así como prácticas familiares, escolares, (...)

    Playing peripatos: Creativity and abductive inference in religion, art and war.Katya Mandoki - 2019 - Semiotica 2019 (230):369-387.
    Peirce proposed the concept of abductive inference to inquire into the generation of new hypotheses and defined it as another term for pragmatism, no less (Admitting, then, that the question of Pragmatism is the question of Abduction, let us consider it under that form. What is good abduction? What should an explanatory hypothesis be to be worthy to rank as a hypothesis? Of course, it must explain the facts. But what other conditions ought it to fulfill to be good? The (...)
