Metaphysical semiotics

See Balder's latest series of IPS posts on semiotics starting here. Indeed, as earlier in the thread attests, Kennilingam does maintain a transcendental signified that is 'experienced' by privileged and direct access. Hence he maintains the critique only on the relative side of the street while the absolute side transcends it. And this supposed nondual relation is exactly a metaphysics of presence. I'm sure we have amply demonstrated in the forum how to have a postmetaphysical metaphysics of the Real that avoids such claims to 'presence.' And the Lingam is literally only halfway there with his mixed bag. Perhaps we might call his version metaphysemiotics? Pronounced meta-FIZZ-em-ee-ah-tics.
