Beskrivning

I aim to provide a cognitive semiotic explanation of the relationship between artefacts and human beings in relation to agency. Many animals are capable of using or making tools, in this sense, there is a continuity between nonhuman animals and human beings. Nevertheless, the improvement of artefacts by means of design is a human-unique feature. Thus, design is useful to address the question of human agency.
