About this Item

Neuware - The pluralistic and interdisciplinary nature of semiotics has never been more pronounced than it is in our assembly of scholars approaching the idea of Law and Aesthetics in their respective fashions. Nevertheless, despite vastly different cultural influences and different referent systems of law, and despite those barriers at the modern university which impede dialogue across disciplines and certainly across colleges, and which seem to regard individual human beings from atomistic perspectives, there are so many cross-references to link our contributors into a community that the problem is in deciding which theses are to be most emphasized. This is a time for a fanning out, for expansion, for a free walking of the ground of a new idea.The idea of a Legal Aesthetics needs to begin to grow and to differentiate itself. As is the case of all semiotic processes, Legal Aesthetics is, also, a self-regulating and self-organizing and self-generating system, or idea.It is a wonder to simply be able to observe the growth of an idea called legal semiotics. It is such a wonder that Peirce would have loved to have lived into our time to see, to share, to investigate. This branching off of legal semiotics into Law and Aesthetics is, in a sense, a new graft and the start of a new hybrid. 469 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9780820418162

About this title

Synopsis:

The pluralistic and interdisciplinary nature of semiotics has never been more pronounced than it is in our assembly of scholars approaching the idea of Law and Aesthetics in their respective fashions. Nevertheless, despite vastly different cultural influences and different referent systems of law, and despite those barriers at the modern university which impede dialogue across disciplines and certainly across colleges, and which seem to regard individual human beings from atomistic perspectives, there are so many cross-references to link our contributors into a community that the problem is in deciding which theses are to be most emphasized. This is a time for a fanning out, for expansion, for a free walking of the ground of a new idea...The idea of a Legal Aesthetics needs to begin to grow and to differentiate itself. As is the case of all semiotic processes, Legal Aesthetics is, also, a self-regulating and self-organizing and self-generating system, or idea.
It is a wonder to simply be able to observe the growth of an idea called legal semiotics. It is such a wonder that Peirce would have loved to have lived into our time to see, to share, to investigate. This branching off of legal semiotics into Law and Aesthetics is, in a sense, a new graft and the start of a new hybrid.
