    Descriptiono ...an original philosophical position ...historically thorough, carefully argued, and well disciplined.O NRobert C. Neville Semiotic theory, which has restricted its focus largely to human forms of signification, is transformed by Robert S. Corrington into a semiotics of nature itself. Corrington situates the divide between onature naturingO and onature naturedO within the context of classical American pragmaticism and postmodern psychoanalysis. At the heart of this new metaphysics is an insistence that all signs participate in larger orders of meaning that are natural and religious. Meanings embodied in nature point beyond nature to the mystery inherent in positioned codes and signs.

    Review quote
    "[Corrington] undertakes a formidable task in his latest book: a metaphysical semiotics of the world... Ecstatic Naturalism ultimately offers breadth, mysticism and unshakeable faith. It sees optimistically and asks that others do similarly- a rare invitation in a postmodern world." - Environmental Politics " ... an original philosophical position ... historically thorough, carefully argued, and well disciplined."- Robert C. Neville
    Back cover copy
    Semiotic theory, which has restricted its focus largely to human forms of signification, is transformed by Robert S. Corrington into a semiotics of nature itself. Corrington situates the divide between ""nature naturing"" and ""nature natured"" within the context of classical American pragmaticism and postmodern psychoanalysis. At the heart of this new metaphysics is an insistence that all signs participate in larger orders of meaning that are natural and religious. Meanings embodied in nature point beyond nature to the mystery inherent in positioned codes and signs.
