Some Remarks on the Semio-Anthropology of Writing

A Pluralist Perspective

Sungdo Kim
From the journal Chinese Semiotic Studies


The aim of this work consists in constructing some epistemological foundations for the semio-anthropology of writing. While recognizing the conceptual discord on the ontological properties of writing, the author provides some genealogies of perspectives on writing including the extensive conceptualization inspired by J. Derrida. The author of this paper wants to insist on the epistemological necessity of graphic pluralism beyond the narrow linguistic notion of writing. In doing so, he would envisage to discover the broad and productive domain of semiotics of writing.
