Terminology[edit | edit source]
- Symbology concerns the study of symbols
- Symbology may also refer to:
- "Science of Symbolism"
- quoted from the subtitle of Ogden, C. K. & I. A. Richards (1923). The Meaning of Meaning: A Study of the Influence of Language upon Thought and of the Science of Symbolism. London: Routledge & Kegan Paul Ltd. [^]
- "Symbology" may at least serve as a shorthand symbol standing for the "science of symbolism" as coined by the celebrated authors (1923).
- "Symbology" may well be worth a synonym to:
- Saussure's "semiology,"
- Welby's "signifies," and
- Peirce's "semiotics" in vogue.
- Neither "symbology" nor "symbolism" is in vogue in the sense Ogden and Richards would prefer.
- "Symbology" or "science of symbolism" may be defined as symbol to stand for the special paradigm Ogden and Richards have founded to influence studies on the influence of symbols upon thoughts.
