This book introduces psychosemiotics, the study of how we learn, understand, and use the signs of culture. In describing seven signways through which we come to know our worlds, Howard A. Smith applies insights from multiple intelligences theory, evolutionary psychology, and the semiotics of Charles Sanders Peirce. This book also provides implications for educational practice and suggestions for ongoing inquiry in psychosemiotics.
