Turning Signs

by Gary Fuhrman

Turning Signs is a hypertext netbook about the process of meaning. It can be read in many ways, online or off. A systematic reading would begin with Chapter 1 and proceed to the end of Chapter 19. Those chapters constitute the left-hand (obverse) side of the Contents list below.

The first chapter gives an overview of what the book is about and the focus of each chapter.

Systematic readers who are unable to read from a screen are free to print parts of this book as specified in the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License. Those willing to read online at their own pace are free to use the embedded hyperlinks as a glossary or reminder of previous chapters, or to access other online resources. These include the other (non-obverse, nonlinear) parts of the netbook:
