's review

really liked it

Life is constitutively semiotic
Charles Sanders Peirce's 3 types of signs: icons, indices, symbols
Only the third type of sign (symbol) specifies human language, but humans and non human animals represent themselves and the world through the first two
An anthropology beyond the human accounts for the semiosis (interpretation and representation) of living beings
All living beings are selves - loci of a living ecology
All living beings live to inhabit a future
All living beings have a tendency to take on habits - the generality of living thought
