The concept of text in cultural semiotics

  • Göran Sonesson


In this article, I will be concerned with interpreting a concept — or rather, several concepts masquerading under one single label — of a particular system of interpretation, Semiotics of culture, as introduced by the Tartu school, and later developed by, among others, Roland Posner. Since my goal is, in the last analysis, to understand something about the interpreted domain, rather than about this particular system of interpretation, I will feel free to have recourse to other systems of interpretation, including the vernacular, to the extend that they use the same label and/or the same concept.
