Vincent M. Colapietro is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University at the Rose Hill Campus, Bronx, New York. He is known for his work in two overlapping fields, classical American philosophy and semiotics. Colapietro is the author of Peirce's Approach to the Self: A Semiotic Perspective on Human Subjectivity (SUNY Press, 1989) and has published numerous articles in such journals as The Journal of Philosophy, The Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society, The Journal of Speculative Philosophy, and The Bucknell Review.
The field of semiotics seems like a tower of Babel fraught with newly coined words and exotic uses of ordinary words. This compact resource provides an indispensable key to the specialized vocabulary of a growing international community of scholars in literature, cultural studies, philosophy, anthropology, cinema and women's studies. 487 clear, straightforward definitions shed light on the semiotic texts of Saussure, Peirce, Levi-Strauss, Barthes, Eco Kristeva, Derrida, Irigaray, and others. The perspectives of major contemporary philosophers on such basic issues as the structure of psychological theory, the nature of language, and the existence of mental representations are covered in 20 important and accessible essays. Each section opens with an essay outlining the principal questions under discussion. Computation theory, artificial intelligence, human intelligence, and new frontiers are all covered. A companion to Philosophy and Cognitive Science, this reader presents the cutting edge for students and researchers in the field.
