Sanity's Insanity: Applying semiotics to understand the hidden world of mind, culture and gender roles By Stephen Jarosek
Paperback: $22.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
We westerners are immersed in a dysfunctional western culture. Like a fish that cannot imagine what existence would be like at the surface, we cannot imagine what existence would be like in the... More > absence of the culture that gives us our identities. There is a theory behind how and why this is. To this end, the author considers semiotics within the context of a unifying cognitive science. Feminism provides a compelling illustration of the western dysfunction. We are immersed in it, and have difficulty seeing things as they really are. The author lifts us out of the water, to enable us to see feminism as a modern form of chivalry - a parochial western artifact that is no different to any of the other outrages that have taken place throughout history. The strategy of this interdisciplinary book cuts across themes that include semiotics, philosophy, sexuality, psychology and feminism. We might discern, on the horizon, a shape taking form… perhaps it is the unification of science and religion.< Less
