Biosemiotics: A New Science of Biology?

Filozofia, 68 (2013), 10, 859-867.
Typ článku: State

Biosemiotics is a new approach to the explanation of living. The central thesis of biosemiotics, “life is semiosis”, is a basis for a new science of living which should replace contemporary (or traditional) biology. The reason is that biosemiotics reveals new qualities of living, which are unaccessible through the methods of contemporary, pure empirical biology. The paper outlines basic theses of biosemiotics, distinguishes two main approaches, and challenges the central thesis with the focus upon its interpretation in “scientific” biosemiotics.
