Don Favareau and the Road to Biosemiotic Transdisciplinarity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Don Favareau has been a dynamic contributor to the development of biosemiotics its organization, not only with his seminal book: Essential Readings in Biosemiotic: Anthology and Commentary from 2010, where he edited all his colleagues’ writings creating the history of biosemiotics. He has assumed the role of the modest and benevolent interdisciplinary integrator through his pervasive kindness and openness to all serious initiatives. Always he is considering where a specific contribution could fit in to the overall development of biosemiotics and pondering how a change in the foundation of science should be made in order for such an inter- and transdisciplinary endeavour as biosemiotics to succeed. Finally he is a supreme speaker and communicator, with an ability to illustrate and popularize biosemiotics for a broader audience that not many others in the association can claim to have.
