| ||A General Introduction to the Semeiotic of Charles Sanders Peirce|
In this book, Dr Liszka presents a systematic and comprehensive account of Peirce's theory.

To understand the meaning of a myth within a culture is to understand the norms of that culture. To understand how myth functions in a culture, on the other hand, is to form the basis for a comprehensive critique of that culture.
