This chapter introduces Peirce’s theory of semiotics in terms of his distinction between dyadic and triadic modes of signification. The triadic concept of the sign is then constructively developed in a three-stage theory of diagrammatic signification. The interpretation of semiotics via triadic relations is contrasted as a postmodern point of view with the dyadic and dualist modern approach of Cartesianism and Saussurean semiology.

Keywords:   Charles S. Peirce, Semiotics, Triadic relations, Saussure, Diagrammatic reasoning
