Open peer commentary on the article “Semiosis as Eigenform and Observation as Recursive Interpretation” by Diana Gasparyan. Abstract: In this commentary, I would like to make two points. The first point is concerned with the typology of the concept(s) of “sign.” All of Gasparyan’s examples of signs are conventional signs, in the formation of which humans, by definition, play an important role- but do her arguments apply to all kinds of signs, as she claims? The second point is about the possibility of a metaposition to semiotics. Gasparyan argues that such a metaposition is impossible and I would like to shed more light on the scope of this claim.
