Skrócony opis: 
The course is given partly in distance learning modality (8 units), and partly in onsite modality (7 units). It aims at offering to graduate students both of philosophical and scientific – mainly of physics, mathematics, and computer science – departments, an interpretation of our age that is theoretically grounded, and then it is able, to reckon with the deep changes we are living now, and we will live in the very next future, in any realm of our public and private lives. These changes mainly relate to the evergrowing role of automation, and even of autonomous systems in every realm of our society, substituting humans in many “semantic tasks”. In other terms, if we must connote our age as the “communication age”, we must reckon with the fact that the main actors of the communication realm are today  and ever more tomorrow , not only the conscious communication agents (humans), but also the unconscious ones (automata).

The course is given partly in distance learning modality (8 units), and partly in onsite modality (7 units). It aims at offering to graduate students both of philosophical and scientific – mainly of physics, mathematics, and computer science – departments, an interpretation of our age that is theoretically grounded, and then it is able, to reckon with the deep changes we are living now, and we will live in the very next future, in any realm of our public and private lives. These changes mainly relate to the evergrowing role of automation, and even of autonomous systems in every realm of our society, substituting humans in many “semantic tasks”. In other terms, if we must connote our age as the “communication age”, we must reckon with the fact that the main actors of the communication realm are today  and ever more tomorrow , not only the conscious communication agents (humans), but also the unconscious ones (automata). This fact depends mainly on the semiotic and not epistemic foundation of signification in logic, and then it refers to the algebra and calculus of relations having in Peirce’s and Tarski’s works their precursors, which has today its more complete expression in the Category Theory – main object of the related course “A Dual Ontology of Nature, Life and Person”. Therefore, our course concerns mainly the contemporary completion of the socalled “linguistic turn”, from a conceptualist to a semiotic ontology of logic, i.e., independently from any reference to a knowing subject. We give then an explicatio terminorum of the notion of “transcendental” (= prelogical or ontological foundation of the logical truth), and how this notion is useful for distinguishing different ages in the history of Western thought. Afterward, we show show that, because of the conventionalist character of natural languages, the notion of the “transcendental of language” (O. Apel), affirming the primacy of language over knowledge, justifies often a relativist interpretation of our communication, postmodern age. This cannot cope with the universality of the laws (not the rules) both of mathematical, and of philosophical logics. Two main schools of thought fought in XX cent. against such an outcome: the phenomenological and the semiotic ones. Despite we show that both share a close, even though independent origin in Husserl’s and Peirce’s criticism to the (dyadic) “(Boolean)algebra of logic” of Schröder at the end of XIX cent., only the semiotic one, because of the (triadic) algebraic roots of semeiosis in Peirce, can cope with the most advanced developments in mathematical and philosophical logic related with Category Theory. This theory – main object of the other course on the “Dual Ontology of Nature, Life and Person”  and its applications, not only in quantum physics, and theoretical computer science, but, also, in formal philosophy – formal ontology, formal epistemology, formal ethics, …  applies even to the same “inner discourse” of the phenomenological reflection. This leads us, on the one hand, to propose an updated taxonomy of the different ontologies for our postmodern age. On the other hand, this leads us to propose a new role for the phenomenological epoché in our postmodern age, different from that supposed originally by Husserl.
