The Swiss Pioneer in NVCS Heini Hediger

Kena lugemine, paeluvad pildid ja huvitavad allmärkused, aga Sebeoki enda tekstist midagi märkimisväärset tsiteerimiseks ei leidnudki. Liiga lühike ja argine. Danesi eessõnast leidsin aga kaks kasulikku katkendit. Muu hulgas sain teada, et Danesi jaoks on PMS (Primary Modeling System), SMS ja TSM samaväärsed Perice'i esmasuse, teisesuse ja kolmasusega. Igatahes, modelleerimisest:
Danesi, Marcel 2001. Hediger through Sebeok: An Introduction to the Biosemiotic Paradigm
In this framework, the notion of modeling is pivotal. This is definable as the species-specific ability to produce forms to stand for referents that have some relevance to species continuity. In the human species, the form may be imagined, in which case it is called by psychologists a mental image, or it may be something externalized, in which case it is called by semioticians and philosophers, a representation. Semiotic research has identified four basic types of forms: (1) signs (words, gestures, etc.); (2) texts (stories, theories, etc.); (3) codes (language, music, etc.); and (4) figural assemblages (metaphors, metonyms, etc.). More specifically, a model can be defined as a form that has been imagined or made externally (through some physical medium) to stand for an object, event, feeling, etc., known as a referent, or for a class of similar (or related) objects, events, feelings, et.c, known as a referential domain. (Danesi 2001: 8)
The ability to make models is, actually, a derivative of semiosis. When an infant comes into contact with a new object, his or her instinctive reaction is to explore it with the senses, i.e. to handle it, taste it, smell it, listen to any sounds it makes, and visually observe its features. This exploratory phase of knowing the object constitutes a sensory modeling stage. The resulting internal model (metnal image) allows the infant to recognize the same object subsequently without having, each time, to examine it over again "from scratch" with his or her sensory system (although the infant often will examine its physical qualities for various other reasons).
