Example text

Biosemiotics seems to deal with all kinds of things, and all sizes: from the infinitely small (DNA, for one) to the infinitely big (the Chosmos). And all that stays in the middle: cells, molecules, plants, animals, ecosystems, light, virtuality, you name it. All seems possible. Why? Because BIOS is a Greek word for life. Now, is there anything a scholar can talk that is not about life? In taxonomy, before reaching Life, one needs approximately 9 steps: Species, Genus, Family, Order, Class, Phylum, Kingdom, Domain, and finally Life.

It is crucial for the zoosemiotician to keep up to date with the developments of each of these disciplines, even when (as in the case of bioacoustics) the communion of interests does not correspond to a communion of conclusions (it is safe to say that bioacoustics and zoosemiotics run in the same direction, but on two parallel tracks). ”. 16 1 Introduction to Zoosemiotics Zoosemiotics, when (1) scientific and (2) up to date, provides a set of theoretical strategies and conceptual bridges that support and, with a bit of luck, improve the study of animal semiosis (if anything, at least making it clear that “communication” is not the only phenomenon related to information production and reception).

25 The problems that zoosemiotics is supposed to solve in order to “emancipate” nonhuman animals in the eyes of an anthropocentric public are in principle the same problems anthropology was supposed to solve in order to emancipate non-western cultures in the eyes of a western-centric public. For this reason, research strategies in the two disciplines are very similar – not to mention that anthropologists often have to deal with forms of human civilization with whom it is hardly possible to communicate, and thus have to formulate methods that can make research possible without linguistic interaction.
