Snow, Forest, Silence by Eero Tarasti
Book DescriptionThirty high-level essays on various aspects of semiotics by Finnish, Estonian, and Hungarian scholars. Finnish semiotics naturally forms part of the European state of the art, while remaining open to developments in the field coming from Russia and the United States. Though a "Finnish School of Semiotics" may not yet exist, Finland at the least boasts a vibrant semiotic tradition with its own history. This anthology consists of 30 essays, most of them written by Finnish, Estonian, and Hungarian scholars. The essays reflect a multiplicity of projects, ranging from explicitly national issues to quite "universal" themes such as signs of media, cinema, music, writing, actoriality, gastronomy, mental illness, language, habitus, distinction, and more.
