    Writing a Different Ending to the "World War" Pitting Humanity Against the Biosphere in Michel Serres and Jacques Derrida's Philosophy.Keith Moser - 2019 - Substance 48 (2):41-58.
    This study explores the ecocidal ramifications of the ecological "world war" pitting humanity against the remainder of the biosphere outlined by Michel Serres and Jacques Derrida. Clearly influenced by Serres's environmentally engaged essays beginning with Le Contrat Naturel, Derrida decries the "war without mercy" epitomizing our current unsustainable relationship with the universe in his late philosophy. In The Animal That Therefore I am and The Beast and the Sovereign series, Derrida reinforces Serres's bold philosophical claim that our mistreatment of the (...)

  2. Derrida’s “Chimerical Experimental Exercise”: An Ecolinguistic Dream of a More Biocentric Language.Keith Moser - 2021 - Semiotica 2021 (242):1-16.
    The purpose of this study is to probe the implications of Derrida’s linguistic theories in his late philosophy. Adopting an interdisciplinary and deconstructive approach to critical discourse analysis that erodes the foundation of anthropocentric binary thought paradigms, this exploration of Derrida’s ecolinguistic dream of a more biocentric language problematizes three specific cognitive structures that represent an unsustainable form of dichotomous thinking. The philosopher illustrates that the concept of “human” and “animal,” the “genesis myth,” and the Cartesian notion of the Bête (...)

    A Biosemiotic Reading of Michel Onfray’s Cosmos: Rethinking the Essence of Communication From an Ecocentric and Scientific Perspective.Keith Moser - 2018 - Semiotica 2018 (225):405-421.
    In Cosmos, Onfray argues in favor of a conceptualization of communication based on recent scientific discoveries. Similar to many researchers in the field of biosemiotics, the controversial philosopher posits that all life forms engage in constant semiosis. As opposed to being a singular characteristic that only homo sapiens possess, Onfray contends that all organisms are endowed with semiosic faculties that enable them to exchange information in purposeful and meaningful ways. Appealing to scientific logic, the philosopher debunks the common misconception that (...)
