Start your review of Signifying Nothing: The Semiotics of Zero Write a review Shelves: philosophy-theory-and-other-their-i I have never really grasped semiotics. I get the general idea, one thing, the sign, points to something else. Maybe this is pretty self evident, but in other examples the whole thing becomes a muddle, for me at least, kind of like a chicken or the egg question. As a result I have never given much attention to semiotics, it hurts my head and leads to unnecessary confusion, for me at least. The argument of the book is that the concept of zero entered into the European mind at about the same time that paper money came to economics and the vanishing point into painting. All three represent revolutions of sort in the way that the world was viewed.

First, it breaks the ever more damaging divorce between science and the analysis of culture by taking mathematics as the key system for its exploration of conceptual changes in the Renaissance: the introduction of the Hindu zero in mathematics, the development of perspective in painting, the development of imaginary money. Second, its characterisation of the fundamental alterations of signifying codes in the Renaissance is conceived not as an historical investigation finding its justification in the realms of influence and tradition but as a genuine semiotic study which links mathematics, painting and money through the tracing of formal similarities in their historical transformations.
