Synopsis

Why is it that certain members of the human species routinely put their survival at risk by smoking cigarettes? Why is it that some females make walking a struggle for themselves by donning high heels? This book attempts to answer such questions. The author aims to show that the discipline that endeavours to understand the human meaning quest is known as semiotics. He demonstrates how semiotics unravels the meanings of signs that make up the system of everyday life that we call a culture or a society.
