Sammanfattning (abstract):
One of the main contributions by social constructivists is the revival of the classical questioning of the deeply rooted additive notion of man based on two epistemologically and ontologically separate categories. Yet social constructivist thinking has been criticized on the grounds that its emphasis on language and semiotics makes the nature and the physical body irrelevant in social constructivist discourses. In contrast to this kind of criticism, this paper argues that the semiotic perspective offers an outstanding opportunity for constructing an ecological framework that goes beyond this dual concept of man and the world. The aim of the paper is to do so using an interdisciplinary approach integrating the social and physical realms: The concepts ‘social construction’ and ‘information’ are elaborated and integrated.
