Biosemiotic Transdisciplinary Concept of Information for Global Exchange

    Resumé

    Living organisms can be described from a natural scientific as well as a phenomenologicalhermeneutical humanistic type of knowledge system. Organism’s genes and physiology as well as their experiences, learning capability and social role have causal influence on their behavior. As such the general study of embodied life falls between the traditional organizations of subject areas grouped in Snows two cultures of sciences and humanities. A central problem is that this two-culture-view lacks a common epistemological and ontological framework. My view is that If we want to define a universal concept of information covering subjective experiential as well as intersubjective meaningful communication in nature, technology, society as well as life worlds - then the main problem is, which epistemological, ontological and philosophy of science framework the concept of information should be based. I do not find the arguments fore the core of reality across nature, culture, life and mind to be of a purely mathematical, logical or computational nature convincing. Therefore the core of the information concept should also include perception, signification and meaning construction in its foundation if we are going to produce a true transdisicplinary framework for encompassing nature, technology as well as embodied meaningful cognition and communication. To include the phenomenological and hermeneutical aspects as foundational will also open for a dialogue between the non-fundamentalist aspects of sciences, religions and political ideologies making the violent clashes between cultures less likely.
