How subjective is subjective : subjectiveness of the objects of Umwelt?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientific


Kalevi Kull has for a long time promoted Uexküllian biosemiotics that has Umwelt
in its central concept. Umwelt is understood typically as a subjectively accessible
world of an organism and it is suggested that the sense of subjectiveness here should be limited to subjective access and subjective contents belong to Innenwelts that should be redefined and distinguished from Umwelts.
