Semiotics (the study of sign processes-`semiosis'-and sign systems) embraces linguistics, philosophy, and literary studies, as well as linking to anthropology, art, psychology, and biology.

This new Routledge collection helps to make sense of the subject's huge interdisciplinary corpus of scholarly literature and brings together the best and most influential materials from `the first phase', neo-classics from the institutionalization of semiotics in the 1960s, and contemporary works illustrating the ongoing development of semiotics and its widening applications (for example, in the natural sciences).

Volume I (`Philosophy') collects pre-modern material showing the genesis of semiotics from Locke to Peirce, along with a range of work from the last thirty years. Volume II (`Linguistics') includes key work from recent developments in cognitive linguistics and cognitive semantics, while Volume III focuses on `Text and Image'. Finally, Volume IV (`Logic, Biology, Psychology, Culture, and Anthropology') gathers the best offerings from other disciplines, and from emerging fields such as `biosemiotics'.

Fully indexed, and with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, that places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, this is an essential work destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital one-stop reference resource.
