Appropriations posting

This is one among many concepts I’ve been anticipating in recent years. This posting will be expanded beyond this brief note (its permalink now secured). Presently, it serves as a footnote for ¶1.2 of “enlanguaging mind.”

Cellular signal transduction is the primal form of biological “communication”. Terrence Deacon develops this kind of interest into a biosemiosis of hierarchic emergence (chapter 14 there) in neurocognition. But a Derridean prioritization of the “glyph” (or trope-ical trace) in linguistic expression may be interestingly mapped back into biosemiosis of cognitivity for a usefully “grammatological” reading of mentality.
