Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references and index.
Contents The anthropocentric self in Peirce's semiotic pragmaticism -- The anthropocentric self in Jaspers' periechontology -- Nature's primal self in ecstatic naturalism -- Nature's primal self: an ecstatic naturalist's critique of Peirce's semiotic construction of the self and Jaspers' elucidation of Existenz.
Summary The underlying theme of this book is the analysis of Corrington's ecstatic naturalism as a breakthrough movement that combines the fields of semiotics, theology, depth psychology, and philosophy in a new metaphysics of nature. Ecstatic naturalism provides a viable alternative to Peirce's semiotic conception of the self and to Jaspers' existential elucidation of Existenz.
