[Xmca-l] Re: Happy New Year and Perezhivanie!

I am not sure what part of Larry's or mine text you refer to, Andy, or why what I have written raises that question. But if your question is whether I think that words (as signs) are immaterial, or that a cube (as per the empirical case in our article) is immaterial as sign, then of course not. If your question is whether I think that sign relations are immaterial because they are not things but relations, then again no, that's not what I think or try to say. I assume we agree, however, that a pointing finger *does* things in a very different way than things can be done with a stick.

Is that right, Alfredo, what Larry says? That signs are not
material artefacts (as I had thought), at all? It seemed to
me that you were saying that as well.
