Pedagogy and Edusemiotics

This book represents an essential resource exploring semiotics for education: Edusemiotics. It opens new pathways of engaging with signs inside/outside schools and across theory, practice, poetry, art, technology and politics. – Peter Pericles Trifonas, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education/University of Toronto. Author of Reading Culture and Deconstructing the Machine (with Jacques Derrida)

This trenchant collection of essays successfully integrates the scientific rigors of semiotics with a sophisticated application of creative arts in the context of both formal and informal pedagogy. The groundbreaking research in this volume represents a long- overdue inquiry into multiple relations and cross-currents in education worldwide and as informed by such luminaries as Peirce, Bahktin, Greimas, Kristeva, Havel, and other thinkers. A must to read! – Thomas E. Peterson, University of Georgia (USA). Author of The Revolt of the Scribe in Modern Italian Literature and numerous essays in Educational Philosophy and Theory

The book comprises a series of ingenious semiotic approaches to educational theory, practice and research. It represents a synthesis of analytic reason with poetics and images to enrich the meaning of education. – John Deely, Professor of Philosophy, University of St. Thomas (Houston, USA). Author of Four Ages of Understanding: The First Postmodern Survey of Philosophy from Ancient Times to the Turn of the Twenty-First Century
