9780819167057: Medical Semiotics

This state-of-the-art monograph offers a comprehensive model of medicine based on language in which health and illness are presented as a matter of self-description or autobiography, and contains a philosophy of medicine based on the general theory of signs. Includes a sketch of the history of medicine in terms of how medicine has conceptualized signs and symptoms over the centuries; formulates a semiotic view of the symptom, drawing on theories of Peirce, Buhler, Freud, and Greimas; introduces a semiotic medical model; and develops a logic of life based on modern views of cosmology and evolution. Volume VII in the Sources in Semiotics series.

Review:

...represents a daring effort to furnish a theoretical groudwork for a philosophy of medicine bases in a general theory of signs. Baer's is a highly suggestive and creative effort.>>>> (International Studies In Philosophy)

The book brings the most profound interpretation of the subject matter....>>>> (Dr. Thure von Uexk?ll International Studies In Philosophy)

Baer's book is, first, a wonderful read and, second, the best evidence for the justification of semiotics to its critics.>>>> (Semiotica)
