Summary
"Following in the steps of classic pragmatists, especially C.S. Peirce, Giovanni Maddalena's The philosophy of gesture revolutionizes the pattern of synthesis through the ideas of change and continuity and proposes 'gesture' as a new tool for synthesis. Defining gesture as an action with a beginning and an end that carries a meaning, Maddalena explains that it is a dense blending of all kinds of phenomena-feelings and vague ideas, actual actions, habits of actions (and of signs) icons, indexes, and symbols. When the blending of phenomena and signs is densest, the gesture is 'complete, ' and its power of introducing something new into knowledge is at its highest."
