Presentation

My dissertation concerns historical modes of reasoning towards future uncertainties. I, in particular, focus on semiotic forms of inference, and this logic’s epistemological roots through a genealogy. Via a number of exemplars, I also demonstrate how, and where, this semiotic style of anticipation is present in modern economic activity, and how it relates to recent sociological theorizing on the temporal structure of capitalism.
