Boltzmann’s Sleight, Trim’s Hat, and the Confusion concerning Entropy
Traces the roots of sign-making and purposeful behavior to energetic flows, and addresses the deep confusion in both the humanities and sciences regarding entropy, mistakenly conflated with disorder. Discusses Isabelle Stengers, biosemiotics, perpetual motion machines, and the surplus energy which sows the seeds for polysemy, poetry, and postmodernism.
