A fully-fledged doctrine of signs, with many horizons for the future, was the result of Thomas A. Sebeok's work in the twentieth century. This volume, using the testimonies of key witnesses and participants in the semiotic project, offers a picture of how Sebeok, through his development of knowledge of endosemiotics, phytosemiotics, biosemiotics and sociosemiotics, enabled semiotics in general to redraw the boundaries of science and the humanities as well as nature and culture

39 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides a comprehensive introduction to all the important recent developments in the media from constitutions to policy and practice. Describes the diversity of the media as a series of separate and distinct industries and practices; explores the issues which directly infringe on the different media- audience feedback, belief about effects, broadcast policy and different traditions of organising, studying and funding; and examines the presentations that actually appear in the media and how the media presents different facets of the real world
The American thriller : generic innovation and social change in the 1970s by Paul Cobley( Book )

23 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The American thriller developed in a distinctive way in the 1970s, generating exciting and interesting narratives about crime, police, detectives, corruption, paranoia and revenge. At a time when American political life seemed to be the very stuff of thrillers, the genre underwent a major transformation. But how can we know how these new thrillers were experienced in the period? How can we gain a sense of the ways in which they were read by contemporary audiences?

Cultural implications of biosemiotics by Paul Cobley( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first book to consider the major implications for culture of the new science of biosemiotics. The volume is mainly aimed at an audience outside biosemiotics and semiotics, in the humanities and social sciences principally, who will welcome elucidation of the possible benefits to their subject area from a relatively new field. The book is therefore devoted to illuminating the extent to which biosemiotics constitutes an 'epistemological break' with 'modern' modes of conceptualizing culture. It shows biosemiotics to be a significant departure from those modes of thought that neglect to acknowledge continuity across nature, modes which install culture and the vicissitudes of the polis at the centre of their deliberations. The volume exposes the untenability of the 'culture/nature' division, presenting a challenge to the many approaches that can only produce an understanding of culture as a realm autonomous and divorced from nature"--Page 4 of cover

Semiotics for beginners by Paul Cobley( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why study signs? This perennial question of philosophy is answered in the 20th century by the science of semiotics. An animal's cry, poetry, the medical symptom, media messages, language disorders, architecture, marketing, body language - all these, and more, fall within the sphere of semiotics." "Introducing Semiotics outlines the development of sign study from its classical precursors to contemporary post-structuralism. Through Paul Cobley's text and Litza Jansz's illustrations, this seminal introduction identifies the key semioticians and their work and explains the simple concepts behind difficult terms. For anybody who wishes to know why signs are crucial to human existence and how we can begin to study systems of signification, this book is the place to start."--Jacket
