This book is about learning. And living. Learning occurs within the flow of living, and living is the flow from within which signs emerge. Within the flow, we appropriate signs for the purpose of learning and living and communicating. In another manner of putting it. semiosis lives, and we live semiosis, semiosis is life, and life is living semiosis. Which is to say that semiosis is the way of all signs; it is the Buddha in the sign. This book, then, offers a radical interpretation of Charles S. Peirce by placing his concept of the sign within certain facets of Buddhist philosophy. Floyd Merril works at Purdue University.
