Recursive-hierarchical systems are
multi-level systems that constitute their systemic closure through recursion.
Their unique systemic nature has been ignored for years, causing confusion
about their activity. In semiotics, for example, the logic of signification has
fallen prey to the post-modernists’ “hall of mirrors,” which
fails to grasp the logic of in-between that underlies recursive-hierarchical
systems. My aim in this paper is to illustrate the logic of in-between by
“deconstructing” the post-modernists’ hall of mirrors and the
phenomenon of mirroring.
