Towards a semiotic biology : life is the action of signs by Kalevi Kull( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents programmatic texts on biosemiotics, written collectively by world leading scholars in the field (Deacon, Emmeche, Favareau, Hoffmeyer, Kull, Marko, Pattee, Stjernfelt). In addition, the book includes chapters which focus closely on semiotic case studies (Bruni, Kotov, Maran, Neuman, Turovski). According to the central thesis of biosemiotics, sign processes characterise all living systems and the very nature of life, and their diverse phenomena can be best explained via the dynamics and typology of sign relations. The authors are therefore presenting a deeper view on biological evolution, intentionality of organisms, the role of communication in the living world and the nature of sign systems - all topics which are described in this volume. This has important consequences on the methodology and epistemology of biology and study of life phenomena in general, which the authors aim to help the reader better understand
The garden in the machine : the emerging science of artificial life by Claus Emmeche( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Garden in the Machine touches on every aspect of this complex and rapidly developing discipline, including its connections to artificial intelligence, chaos theory, computational theory, and studies of emergence. Drawing on the most current work in the field, this book is the definitive overview of artificial life. Professionals and nonscientists alike will find it an invaluable guide to concepts and technologies that may forever change our definition of life
Mapping frontier research in the humanities( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The classical sciences were organised around academic disciplines but knowledge production today is burgeoning and increasingly interdisciplinary, specialised; it is also distributed across a variety of societal sectors and increasingly involves interactions with extra-academic fields and transdisciplinary methods which focus on solving societal challenges. As a result, the notion of liberal arts and humanities within Western research universities is undergoing profound transformations. In Mapping Frontier Research in the Humanities, the contributors explore this transformative process. What are the implications, both for the modes of research and for intellectual leadership in higher education? Based on multidimensional methodologies for mapping knowledge diversity, the volume outlines reasons for optimism on the potentials as well as concerns regarding imbalances in the current hybrid university system. Drawing on a number of case studies and conceptual-empirical mappings of the humanities, the perceived divide between the classical humanities and 'post-academic' modes of research is critically discussed. Avoiding simple mechanical metrics, the contributors suggest a heuristic appreciation of different types of impact and styles of reasoning in the humanities. From this perspective, a more composite picture of human culture, language and history emerges from humanities research. It goes beyond the picture of rational agents, and situates human interaction in more complex landscapes of collective identities, networks, and constraints that open for new forms of intellectual leadership in the 21st century"--
Genes, information, and semiosis by Charbel Niño El-Hani( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Up to the middle of the 20th century, biologists studied genes without seeing them as informational structures; information theory was an engineering tool not dealing with the meaning of messages; and, semiotics, the study of signs and their meaning, dealt only with human culture. Today - after progress in molecular biology and a naturalist turn in general semiotics - researchers are beginning to realize that genes, information and semiosis, or sign action, can no longer be understood in isolation. This insight derives from a new scientific field. Biosemiotics investigates the meaning, interpretation, communication, and habit formation of living systems, and the biochemical conditions for sign action. This book clarifies the information talk in molecular and systems biology by building a semiotic model of genes and protein synthesis. It is consistent with the best scientific understanding, and it is non-reductionist, integrating signs, molecules, and natural interpretation. It offers a new definition of gene in biology, and an understanding of information that does not reduce it to digital bits, but sees it as related to the forms and processes of living organisms. Readers not familiar with molecular biology or semiotics are provided with brief introductions to basic concepts. The book is a challenge to entrenched beliefs in the anthropic nature of signs and the substantial nature of genes. No scientific revolutions are offered, but a set of deeper insights into an exciting, new cross disciplinary perspective upon life and signs"--Publisher description
