Resource description

I designate my work as a semeiotic of knowledgeorganization in a somewhat wide meaning of the concept. A somewhat widemeaning means that it is not restricted to LIS research in keywords orrepresentational theory of documents or thesauri construction etc. It buildsupon and is inspired by the semeiotic of Peirce. It understands development of signs as a process of knowledge organization. Here, the focus is on branding,emotions and scientific knowledge.Therefore, the aim of the thesis is to present the concepts: thefundamental sign, the significance‐effect, semeiotic constructivism and theknowledge profile, and to suggest some relations between them. The mainquestions I pursue, and which this thesis hopefully will give answers to, are:Is it possible to define and describe the above mentioned concepts,which have their theoretical starting point in the semeiotic of Peirce? And isit possible to outline a use of these concepts?
