Theory of Discourse and Semiotics : Foucault, Bakhtin, PeirceAleš Vaupotič
, 2019, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph
Abstract: The paper begins with an analysis of a news article reporting
on scientific discovery. The scientific methods are considered from
the point of view of Peircean semiotics and the structuralist semiology.
The usefulness of the Peircean approach in literary scholarship is demonstrated
in the case of the realist novel as it is construed by Hans Vilmar
Geppert. By considering Geppert’s alignment of Bakhtin’s theory of the
novel with Peirce’s sign-theory the similarities and differences between
the discourse-theoretical (considering also Foucault’s work) and semiotic
approaches is outlined. In the second part of the text two cases of artistic
research are presented, the first one, the Friedhof Laguna project from
2003, being realised in the discourse-theoretical frameworks, and the
second one, 3-D visualizations of the NEWW Women Writers database
from 2017, being grounded in the Peircean semiotics.
