They don’t give account that are dead, I showed them the agony, my agony, the agony of living, but they are dead and could not feel it (1) Antonin Artaud La Semiotica, – science of meaning-, derives from two fundamental sources: the American philosopher Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914), founder of the Anglo-Saxon, that he named it precisely, semiotic tradition and the Swiss linguist Ferdinand de Saussure (1857-1913)one of the founders of the European tradition, who defined it as semiology. Etymologically the word semiotics/semiology is constructed from the Greek root sem, sema or semeion, in principle it only meant the study of symptoms, and, for example, in Greek Antiquity the term was applied to the military art and medicine, primarily in the latter, so much so, that at present, the medical study of the symptoms of the disease are He called semiology (2), so it can be summarized, that semiotics is the study of signs, unifying under this perspective, all an aserie guidelines and approaches to the analysis of culture. For Saussure semiology is the general science of all signs, – or symbol – systems, thanks to which men communicate with each other (3), what makes a social science semiology and presupposes that the signs are in systems, thus accentuating the human and social character of its doctrine. Peirce defined semiotics as almost necessary or formal doctrine of signs (), and the logic, in its general sense, is not but another name of semiotics (4), highlighting its logical and formal character. In summary, semiotics, or semiology, dealing with signs, systems and signal events, communication processes, linguistic runs, i.e., semiotics deals understood language as well as the Faculty of communicating, that as the exercise of this power, so it is the science of signs/symbols and signs systems, and is projected in three basic dimensions: the syntactic, – operations based on rules within a system of signs-signs; the semantic – relations between signs and the world external to the system of signs-; and the pragmatic, – evaluation of the system of signs with respect to the object they represent and their users.
