La fonction de la carte geographique: approche epistemologique ternaire

Micheline Cosinschi

Abstract


The function of the geographic map: a ternary epistemological approach. Under the referential of a ternary logic, with the two orthogonal concepts of information/signification, mediated by the third-included, the diagonal organizer of the cartographic communication, this article aims to cladify the pragmatical aspects of the map functionnality as a communication object. The interaction beween the meaning of its information and the information reciprocally contained in its signification, within a specified context and pertinence, implies a strong level of redundancy shared by producers and users of the map, a same system of scientific and ideological values to pass on the cartographic message. We are far from the objective cartographer who would fade away so to let the facts speaks “objectively” by themselves.
