Abstract [en]

According to Peirce’s pragmatic semiotics, meaning (semiosis) is not an infused concept, but a power to engender interpretants. Semiosis is a triadic, context-sensitive (situated), interpreter-dependent (dialogic), materially extended (embodied and distributed) dynamic process. Although meaning is context-sensitive and materially extended, its locus is not well-captured by the notion of an environment. Inspired by biological concepts, we suggest the locus of meaning to be a niche. Here, we develop a semiotic account of musical meaning that emphasizes the location of musical signs in semiotic niches.

Abstract [fr]

Selon la sémiotique pragmatiste de Peirce, le sens (sémiose) n’est pas un concept réifié, mais une puissance à engendrer des interprétants. La sémiose est un processus dynamique triadique, sensible au contexte (positionné), relatif à l’interprète (dialogique), se déployant matériellement (incarné et diffus). Bien que sensible au contexte et se déployant matériellement, son milieu n’est pas bien cerné par la notion d’environnement. Inspiré par les concepts biologiques, nous suggérons que le milieu propre à la signification est une niche. Nous élaborons une conception sémiotique de la signification musicale qui met l’accent sur la localisation des signes musicaux dans des niches sémiotiques.
