    auroal form

    Hi,

    I got difficulty understanding the following paragraph. Could anyone help me out of it? Thanks a lot.

    When we presume a subject that tries to understand what it experiences (and the object - that is to say, Thing-in-Itself - becomes the terminus a quo), then, even before the formation of the chain of interpretants, there comes into play a process of interpreting the world that, especially in the case of novel or unkonwn object, assumes an "auroal" form, made up through trial and error; but this is already semiosis in progress, which calls pre-established cultural systems into question.

    auroal form means, free flowing form

    auroal is the adjective of aurora which is a luminous meteoric phenomenon popularly called Northern Lights. Click Here to see pictures of North Lights

    I have no idea what the paragraph attempts to say, but it does so very badly. :wink:

    Re: auroal form

    How about this.

    When we presume a subject (a Person) that tries to understand what it experiences (and the object - that is to say, Thing-in-Itself (Meaning)- becomes the terminus a quo (the origin from which understanding the Meaning begins), then, even before the formation of the chain of interpretants (Understanding/comprehension), there comes into play a process of interpreting the world that, especially in the case of novel or unknown object, assumes an "auroal" form (a free flowing form of ideas), made up through trial and error; but this is already semiosis (The development of Meaning) in progress, which calls pre-established cultural systems (What we perceive to be true is all that we know)into question.

    Say, "I am having trouble/difficulty understanding...."

    All the best,
