Our essay aims at continuing the work of Jacques Fontanille, who developed a Semiotics of Practice next to a Semiotics of Text. This work, and especially Pratiques sémiotiques (2008), takes up a problem already formulated by Jean-Marie Floch in the article « Êtes-vous arpenteurs ou somnambules ? L’élaboration d’une typologie comportementale des voyageurs du métro » (1990). We will initially retrace the debate about the epistemological relationship between text and practice, outlining the forms of enunciative praxis. Secondly, we propose the concept of we will consider the visualization that we call ‘notation’: this analytical form of mediation between text and practice does not have the same status of in-vivo textualisations, but it works like an ex-post reconstruction which highlights the main gestures and exchanges while performing their grammaticalization. A more general aim of this essay is an enquiry into the legitimate objects of textual semiotics: what are the objects that it can analyze without betraying its principle of immanence, but also without being unable to analyze practice [less ▲]

Arbitrariness is commonly seen as a major concept in Saussure’s thought, and it even receives the status of a “principle” in his theory. It is not only the characteristic feature of the relation between the signifier and the signified (the semiological relation is arbitrary), but moreover it is constitutive of this very relation (the relation is semiological because it is arbitrary; there is a so-called “semiological relation” established between a signifier and a signified because of the principle of arbitrariness). And when linguists and other Saussurean interpreters comment on the concept of arbitrariness, they usually imply a binary relation: the semiological relation is arbitrary due to the fact that the signifier is arbitrarily chosen vis-à-vis the signified, and vice versa. I will be questioning the latter assertion in this paper. In my opinion, the symmetry of the semiological relation has not been properly demonstrated. The signifier can be seen as arbitrary with regard to the signified, but no reason has been provided to recognize the converse. Instead a number of arguments can be put forth to see arbitrariness as a concept that implies a non-symmetrical relation. [less ▲]

La culture peut-elle être un objet d’étude à part entière ? Les sciences de la culture le donnent implicitement à penser par leur intitulé même, à l’instar de ce qu’ont poursuivi, à l’égard de leurs objets respectifs, les sciences de l’homme, de la société et de la vie. Une telle objectivation, toutefois, ne va pas de soi, les caractères définitoires de la culture — à la fois comme totalité et comme singularité — dérogent à l’objectivation scientifique ordinaire. Dans un premier temps, on commence par considérer trois tentatives d’objectivation de la culture menées en sémiotique, sous le rapport de la sémiosphère (Lotman), de l’esthésie (Rastier) et de la langue. Le crédit accordé à la troisième tentative nous invite à interroger, dans un second temps, le rapport entre langue, texte et culture à partir de la distinction théorique proposée par Hjelmslev entre analyse et fragmentation. Langue, texte et culture sont fonction d’un seul objet empirique pour lesquelles différentes focalisations sont possibles. C’est une fonction restreinte et analytique qui règle le rapport des textes à la langue ; au contraire c’est une fonction extensive, fragmentée et synthétique qui laisse voir les textes comme des œuvres insérées dans les pratiques de la culture.

This work wishes to study how two different media, painting and photography, react to the representation of the same theme, namely the theme of religion and transcendence. It will involve taking as objects of study four different cultural objects: 1) religious painting, 2) artistic photography with a religious theme, 3) devotional photography which is transformed into pious images, and 4) the Russian icon. We will analyse the filter-effect produced by these two media in the representation of religious themes. We will seek to explain why the religious theme in painting has been able to assume a sacred dimension which, contrastingly, seems inaccessible to contemporary artistic photography. [less ▲]
