Titles: Subculture: The Meaning of Style (1979) - Dick Hebdige

“‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things’” (Lewis Carroll).

Words: Can't say what they mean don't mean what they say --Tom Tom Club


A meaning is a set of thoughts that people take symbols to have. Meanings can do many things, such as provoke a certain idea, or denote a certain real-world entity. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meaning [Jan 2006]

  2. Maps of Meaning, The Arcitecture of Belief - Jordan B. Peterson [Amazon US]
    A far-reaching, illuminating study synthesizing research and analysis from many disciplines--neuroscience, archaeology, literature, religion, mythology--to delineate, or map, the primary structures of human behavior and motivation. Peterson, a clinical psychologist and professor at the U. of Toronto, offers bountiful food for thought, for both professional and lay readers, in writing that is clear and jargon-free, but nevertheless conveys the complexity and subtlety of his thinking. -- Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR

  3. Information and Meaning: An Evolutionary Perspective - Tom Stonier [Amazon US]
    Information and Meaning is the third book in a trilogy exploring the nature of information, intelligence and meaning. It begins by providing an overview of the first two works of the trilogy, then goes on to consider the meaning of meaning. This explorat ion leads to a theory of how the brain works. This book differs from others in the field, in that it is written from the perspective of a theoretical biologist looking at the evolution of information systems as a basis for studying the phenomena of information, intelligence and meaning. It describes how neurons create a brain which understands information inputs and then is able to operate on. --via Amazon
