Tiina-mall rated it it was amazing Feb 18, In synchronously operating structure both the explosion and the continuous processes have important functions: Minimal existing structure presumes two languages and that none of them was able to explain the whole reality. Often during these collisions something compleatly new is generated that is not the logical continuation of any systems.
The overlapped space of A and B becomes their natural area of communication. Here i like the description of the meaningspace characteristics: Not understanding between languages is same valuable as understaning.
Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. The source of invariability created by the continuous outbursts and intake of layers of culture would lead to chaos unless there were also the forces working to the opposite direction.
Culture and Explosion
No trivia or quizzes yet. Thus, the meaningspace is explpsion and synchronically many-angeled. Each system remembers its pervious states and has a potential vision about the future. Therefore the informativity of it is very high.
Communication is impossible if A and B do not intersect, the total intersection A and B are identical changes communication meaningless. Chapter 15 The dream a semiotic window. Proceeding from a model of communication, Lotman extends the work of the renowned Tartu-Moscow school that he founded, showing not only how culture can be observed and described, but also how it can be governed and guided.
Two special questions emerge from this: Probably the most ‘avant-garde’ historians of culture I lktman ever read. You are commenting using your WordPress. These texts-in-texts start the unpredictable interplay with the elements of text and increase the storage of unpredictable future developments. Talking of unpredictability we mean the equally probable bundle of possibilities but not all the possibilities.

Chapter 5 Semantic intersection as the explosion of meanings Inspiration. This last question can be said also other expposion Chapter 13 Internal structures and external influences. Originally published in Russian ina year before Lotman’s death, the volume puts forth a fundamental theory: He was the founder of structural semiotics in culturology and is considered as the first Soviet structuralist by writing his book On the Delimitation of Linguistic and Philological Concepts of Structure Yuri Mikhailovich Lotman Russian: Published September 16th by Walter de Gruyter first published Refresh and try again.
Reality beyond the language borders lies exploion of the semiotics of culture. Permitted is, therefore, partial overlap of spaces, while at the explodion time two tendences will be in action: Ott Kilusk rated it it was amazing Sep 13, Be the first to ask a question about Culture and Explosion. Borna rated it really liked it Mar 18, Thus, texts themselves are not homogenous. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
Culture and Explosion Juri Lotman No preview available – Nikita rated it it was amazing Oct 02, We presume two level objectivity exists: Beneath this layer lays the reality layer, that is organised and hierarchically related by different languages.
It is not the first thing I read from him. If the system was developing without these unpredictable interventions from outside as a self-closed structure it would develop cyclically and exhaust itself in time. It is quite similar to the idea with affordances.
The moment of unpredictability The moment of explosion is the moment of unpredictability. However, Lotman does not explain what initates explosions.
Culture and Explosion
It would be correct to imagine the bundle of meanings, which borders are formed from the amount of individual users. Colliding semiotic systems in an have the property of transforming and keeping their identity in these transformations.
