Abstract

In this paper, I wish to offer a new theoretical solution to the issueraised by the Kantian transcendental scheme concerning the connection between the sensible manifold and the unity of the concept. To do this,I intersect Frege’s notion of sense [Sinn] as distinct from meaning [Bedeutung], with Morris’ semiotics and his idea of the “sign vehicle”, and with Maddalena’s theory of gesture.The paper will be developed as follows: I expose the core passages of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason on transcendental schematism; then I refer to Frege’s distinction between sense and meaning, Morris’ notion of “signvehicle” and Maddalena’s theory of gesture. I use them for developingthe last part the argument in favour of the notion of gesture as a dynamic sign vehicle bringing the sense to sign, and for suggesting the possibility of working out a quasi-transcendental semiotics.
