Robinson et le Tarot

By Mikko Kuusimäki

Finland: Bookstore Tiedekirja, 2002. Tout cela peut bien vous paraître un inintelligible galimatias [...]. Mais telle est justement la sagesse du Tarot qu\'il ne nous éclaire jamais sur notre avenir en termes clairs. Imaginez-vous les désordres qu\'engendrerait une prévision lucide de notre avenir? Non, tout au plus permet-il de pressentir notre avenir. Le petit discours que je vous ai tenu est en quelque sorte chiffré, et la grille se trouve être votre avenir lui-même. Chaque événement futur de votre vie vous révélera en se produisant la vérité de telle ou telle de mes prédictions. Printed Pages: 340.. New.

From Nature to Psyche

By Eero Tarasti (Ed.)

Finland: Bookstore Tiedekirja, 2004. The Imatra Summer Congresses have always mirrored the most recent developments in the study of signs. This anthology consists mostly of papers delivered at the congresses of 2001 and 2002. We are facing a new wawe of semiotics, which is no longer focusing on things "post", but on the future - a wawe that surges forward to meet the new intellectual challenges posed by humankind\'s situation in the early 2000s. What neosemiotics will become is as yet hard to say, but to recall Saussure\'s famous prediction, it has the right to exist. Printed Pages: 347.. New.

Movement and Poetic Rhythm

By Drina Hocevar

Finland: Bookstore Tiedekirja, 2003. The musical sense in both poetry and music is fundamentally temporal. The question is not whether music is a language or whether language is music, but rather how the "musicality" of language signifies. The musical sense of poetry is not only heard but it is also felt. In order to deal with these problems the author, Drina Hocevar, from Venezuela, has elaborated a highly original model. She tries to understand the temporal movement as a generative process, deeply rooted in the ontology of our being. Printed Pages: 283.. New.
