I limiti semantici delle cose mostruose

Riccardo Finocchi


In this article the “monstrous” is conceived as something that is almost unthinkable, unnatural. The semiotic analysis of this concept highlights the semantic categories which define it by showing its historical and social correlations as well as its variability. Going through the semiotic texts which have addressed the topic of “monstrous things”, the article will identify the semantic relations that define the concept, also by using the semiotic square.
