" Umberto Eco's Chair is the first appointment in any university explicitly designated as a Professorship of Semiotics...He presents in his new work a highly original theory of sign production, including a carefully wrought typology of signs and of modes of production. His book illuminates, as well, one of his chief concerns: where do the political, epistemological, and natural boundaries of semiotics lie?" "Semiotics (also called semiotic studies) ; is the study of meaning-making, the study of sign process (semiosis) and meaningful communication. It is not to be confused with the Saussurean tradition called semiology which is a subset of semiotics. This includes the study of signs and sign processes, indication, designation, likeness, analogy, allegory, metonymy, metaphor, symbolism, signification, and communication."
