Graphology – The Function of the Semiotic Principle in establishing the claims of a pseudo or proto-science (graphology) to the status of empirical science

September 15, 2013

Before going into academic philosophy as a mature student in 1986 I had published three books on graphology, and been the Research Officer for The British Institute of Graphologists.  On being challenged in philosophy departments about this “irrational” topic I argued that graphology is not esoteric, but intensely analytical. It is the study of regular patterns and shapes directly created by impulses from the brain. I wrote this paper as a response to criticism, and it was immediately published in Semiotica 102-3/4 (1994), 251-278.
