The On Line Journal of
Semiotics, Evolution, Energy, Development

The past 50 years have seen the introduction of information as a physical entity with a mathematical theory. In the last ten years, connections have been developed to energy, evolution and development, as well as to signs, representation, interpretation and the mind. Many of these developments are controversial, such as whether information is intrinsically related to meaning, whether there is a general semiotics that extends beyond human signs, and whether, indeed, there is anything well-defined outside of human theories. This journal deals with these and related issues. More information on topics and debates can be found elsewhere on this site, especially in the program and book from the 1997 SEE meeting, and on the main SEE page
