This book presents the semiotic foundations of a value theory based on the premise that human beings realize value through semiotic processes of interpretation. The foundations is Peircean semiotics, presented in the formalism of category theory. Thus, value is understood as a dynamic system, that is, context dependent, and which corresponds to the open-ended interpretant (seen as process).
The work is the result of research funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and carried out at the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich.
