Ferruccio Rossi-Landi

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Ferruccio Rossi-Landi (Milan, 1 March 1921 – Trieste, 5 May 1985) was an Italian philosopher, an academician and a semiotician.

As a researcher in semiotics, philosophy, political economy, social sciences and anthropology, he has considerably contributed to the development of semiotics and philosophy of language in Italy, with the aim of unifying the European and Anglo-american traditions.


In 1945 he graduates in humanities at the University of Milan, and in 1951 in philosophy at the University of Pavia. He will pursue his studies in Oxford until 1953.

From 1958 to 1962, he taught philosophy at the University of Padua. He had lived abroad during several years, teaching in the United States from 1962 to 1963, first at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor and then at the University of Texas at Austin.

During the 1970s, he had travelled and worked for various European and American universities; besides, he had had the opportunity to teach philosophy and semiotics at the University of Havana.

He had then lectured as a professor in philosophy of history at the University of Lecce. In 1977 he had been in charge of teaching theoretical philosophy at the University of Trieste.

His works can be subdivised in three phases. The first phase starts from the 1950s and regards studies on Charles Morris[disambiguation needed], and the analysis of meaning processes and parlare comune (ordinary language).

The second phase covers all the 1960s. Rossi-Landi proposes a theory about linguistic and sign production, intended as the theory of linguistic and non-linguistic work, which base is the homology[disambiguation needed] between linguistics and economics.

The third phase takes place from 1970 to 1985: Rossi-Landi studies the intricate relationship between language and ideology, and theorises the phenomenon of linguistic alienation.
