Abstract

Upshot: Signs do not interpret the world, but rather act through interpretants, which are themselves sign complexes. Understanding a particular sign requires understanding not only the sign itself, but also the ground, or Umwelt expressed as signs, for that sign. The system of embodied sign, its ground, and resolution as an eigenform is analogous to a description of a response of a creature to a stimulus from an environment at a certain level of analysis.
