Research

1) The ethnosemiotic research, which is one of the most important ways in order to applicate the semiotic methodology to the "everyday practices" that we can observe in the activities of the members of a cultural community.
2) The semiotics of the body with which, in case of practices, the activity of the social actors set up their subjective values. A specific domain in this research is made by the "discours figures" by which the ethnosemiotic subject recognizes himself as a subject of sense.
A reflexion about the "foundamentals" of a science of signification is needed in order to adjust and activate a useful and adequate methodology.
