General Semiotics (Russian Poetics in Translation Volume 3)
. Oxford, Holdan Books, 1976,82pp. paperback. Contents: Modelling significance of the concepts "end" and "beginning" in artistic texts / Yu. M. Lotman ; translated by Wendy Rosslyn --Logico-semiotic level of proverbs and sayings: towards a classification of the genre / G. Permyakov ; translated by Doris Bradbury --Stage setting, artistic space and time in the folk theatre / P.G. Bogatyrev ; translated by L.M. O'Toole --On the cosmological origins of early historical descriptions / V.N. Toporov ; translated by Christopher English. In the mid-1970s, with the establishment of the Neo-Formalist Circle in Britain and the publication of a number of international anthologies of and commentaries on the Russian Formalist theorists of the period 1916-1932, it became clear that this important school of literary theory and criticism was only sketchily known to scholars unable to read Russian. The editors, Ann Shukman and Michael O'Toole, published in English ten volumes (80-120pp. each) of the key Formalists: Eikhenbaum, Tynyanov, Shklovsky, Brik, Jakobson, Tomashevsky, Yarkho, Bernstein, Freidenberg, Bogatyrev and Vinogradov on poetry, prose genres, dramatic structure and cinema.Since the Soviet suppression of Formalist theorizing in the early 1930s, it was left to the Bakhtin School of discourse theory and the Prague School of Structuralists to continue the best of their enterprises until the emergence of the Russian Structuralist theorists of the 1960s to 80s, such as Lotman, Zholkovsky, Scheglov, Toporov, Gasparov, Tarlinskaya and Permyakov, who have continued to influence theories of literature, cinema, language and culture worldwide.

On the Nature of Time a Biopragmatic Perspective on Language, Thought, and Reality
. ( Acta Universitatis Upsaliennsis - Studia Slavica Upsaliensia volume 48. ) Uppsala, 2014, 480pp. illustrated hardback.
¶ This book is a synthesis of more than three decades of research into the concept of time and its semiotic nature. If traditional philosophy - and philosophy of time should be no exception - in the shadow of advancing biology can be said to have reached an impasse, one important reason for this, in harmony with Wittgenstein's vision, appears to have been its lack of appropriate tools for explicating language. The present theory of time proceeds, accordingly, from the exploration of temporal expressions in language as an evolutionary fact. It derives in a hypothetical, coherent feedback process of hierarchically or dered distinctions the semantics of time from its biologically dictated perceptual and cognitive-pragmatic origins. The corresponding abductive-regulative model is anchored in the assumption of biological rhythmization as the very foundation of perception and mental/physical action. Under- stood to originate in space and spatial perspective, time reveals itself as an instrument for temporal perspective on motion (events and situations) in a process of analysis, i.e. discontinuation of chaos made divisible and continuous by the rhythmical screen. Whereas tradition- al philosophy of time paid attention almost exclusively to the temporal category of tense , the biopragmatic model sees strong evidence in the perspectival nature of time for ascribing the decisive, and probably universal, role in temporal analysis to the linguistic category of aspect . Aspect may, according to the present findings, be assumed to partake already of change- of-state and cause-effect analysis without which man's adaptation to new situations - and precondition for survival - would be inconceivable. The proposed model of space/time cogni-tion, inspired by Hegelian dialectics, Heidegger-Gadamer's hermeneutic circle and Peircean logic, makes Kantian a priori superfluous and liberates time from its enigmatic appearance. For the first time in temporal studies it thus appears possible to derive hypothetically linguistic expressions of time all the way from pre-temporal, homogeneous continuity effected by biological rhythmization, via pre-temporal metonymic (Gestalt), chunk-wise partitioning - as a general precondition for the perception and, based on primary metaphorization, the cognition of things, space and motion - to temporal analysis/discontinuation proper, primarily by aspectual perspective, and the subsequent synthesized, heterogeneous continuity of temporally ordered events. The conception of time, so disastrous for modern temporal logic, i.e. as moving object assigned extension, divisible continuity ( ? linearity') and direction, can be shown to have emerged as a result of secondary metaphorization.
