Abstract

The philosophy of language of Anselm of Canterbury (late XIth century) has been the subject of keen interest from historians of logic and semantics who have often interpreted it as anticipation of later or contemporary theories. More recent research has corrected these excessively actualizing interpretations. In this article, I'll try to outline the contribution of Anselm to the history of semiotics, through his reception of Aristotle's philosophy of language (mediated by Boethius) and Augustine's semiotics, showing a decidedly pragmatic twist, often appealing to the use of signs and language.
