عنوان مقاله [English]
Over the past two decades, and in dominant discourses of Humanities, the body has always been present; History, sociology, linguistics, poetics, anthropology, philosophy, communication sciences and marketing, among others, have always benefited from this concept. “Le corps et sens” by Jacques Fontanille is one of the most significant works ever written in this field. The title of the book, like other works published in this approach, goes in some way in line with the theoretical developments of the concept of sign from its creation in the tradition of structural and Saussurean semiotics to modern approaches to semiotic analysis. In this step a question arises in the field: why and how did the concept of the body find its place in semiotics and can it be excluded from its field of study? ? In this article, in addition to present and describe the work, the author seeks to critically analyze the issues.
