Communication worlds of Ch. S. Peirce

Philosophical and cultural studies

The author of the article proposes to rethink the three interrelated semiotic categories such as “sign”, “semiosis” and “interpretanta” established by Charles S. Peirce in a communicative vein. Argues that the dynamic process of interpretation of the sign - “semiosis” - the only possible way of its functioning in communication. The result of the operation is a series of interpretant, which are not only symbolic in nature. In this context, the vision of its own objectivity allows a person to construct “unit features to the concept of” using a sign as a communication tool.
