At the contemporary convergence of systems theory, media studies, and general ecology, the book series Meaning Systems presents inter- and transdisciplinary work connecting the humanities with the discourses of natural, technological, psychic, and social systems. Meaning Systems explores the range of systems discourses from literature, philosophy, and sociology to ecology, technology, and the natural sciences.
Systems theory, enactive cognitive science, Gaia theory, biosemiotics, and media theory provide scholars today with conceptual vocabularies broad enough to connect life, mind, and society with their natural and technological environments, to study the interpenetrations of consciousness and communication, and to extend the insights of linguistics, information theory, and semiotics toward biological and social systems.
Meaning Systems publishes books communicating bodies of systemic knowledge in relation to the materialities of corporeal and technological mediations. It offers a dedicated venue for both established and rising thinkers bringing the discourse of systems to a new level of cultural prominence and productiveness.
