  1. Mental Structures as Biosemiotic Constraints on the Functions of Non-Human (Neuro)Cognitive Systems.Prakash Mondal - 2020 - Biosemiotics 13 (3):385-410.
    This paper approaches the question of how to describe the higher-level internal structures and representations of cognitive systems across various kinds of nonhuman cognitive systems. While much research in cognitive science and comparative cognition is dedicated to the exploration of the cognitive mechanisms and processes with a focus on brain-behavior relations across different non-human species, not much has been done to connect cognitive mechanisms and processes and the associated behaviors to plausible higher-level structures and representations of distinct kinds of cognitive (...)

  • Naturalizing Models: New Perspectives in a Peircean Key.Alin Olteanu, Cary Campbell & Sebastian Feil - 2020 - Biosemiotics 13 (2):179-197.
    This paper reconsiders semiotic modelling in light of recent scholarship on Charles Peirce, particularly regarding his concept of proposition. Conceived in the vein of Peirce’s phenomenological categories as well as of his taxonomy of signs, semiotic modelling has mostly been thought of as ascending from simple, basic sign types to complex ones. This constitutes the backbone of most currently accepted semiotic modelling theories and entails the further acceptance of an unexamined a priori coherence between complexity of cognition and complexity of (...)

  • Cognitive Systems of Human and Non-Human Animals: At the Crossroads of Phenomenology, Ethology and Biosemiotics.Filip Jaroš & Matěj Pudil - 2020 - Biosemiotics 13 (2):155-177.
    The article aims to provide a general framework for assessing and categorizing the cognitive systems of human and non-human animals. Our approach stems from biosemiotic, ethological, and phenomenological investigations into the relations of organisms to one another and to their environment. Building on the analyses of Merleau-Ponty and Portmann, organismal bodies and surfaces are distinguished as the base for sign production and interpretation. Following the concept of modelling systems by Sebeok, we develop a concentric model of human and non-human animal (...)
