About this product
- DescriptionLanguage and Imaginability pursues the hypothesis that natural language is fundamentally heterosemiotic, combining as it does the symbolicity of word sounds with the iconicity of motivated signifieds conceived as socially organized mental events.
- Author BiographyHorst Ruthrof, FICI FAHA, is Emeritus Professor in English and Philosophy at Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia, where he has taught since 1974. He is the author of papers in philosophical, literary, linguistic, and semiotic journals, as well as of The Reader's Construction of Narrative (Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1981), Pandora and Occam: On the Limits of Language and Literature (Indiana UP, 1992), Semantics and the Body: Meaning from Frege to the Postmodern (Toronto UP, 1997; Melbourne UP, 1998), and The Body in Language (Cassell, 2000). His current research includes the search for an ontology suitable for the description of complex constructs, such as natural language, and a continuing concern with the literary exploration of language, as well as Quentin Meillassoux's recent challenge to Kantian perspectivism.
