Changing Signs of Truth: A Christian Introduction to the Semiotics of Communication

Crystal L. Downing
Like all signs, my metaphor cannot fully capture the Truth that transcends all signification. Nevertheless, humans are limited to signs, which function like the mirror

Lewis, then, would agree with Ricoeur and Derrida-that there is no escaping metaphoric language in order to get at pure unadulterated truth; we always understand reality through the metaphors we use. And this is as true for atheists as it is for Christians.

Rather, sexual desire is stimulated by images promulgated by the media, and we strive to remake our bodies to fit those images."6 People have thus substituted signs for reality, submitting themselves to what cultural critic Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) calls "simulacra": copies of reality for which no original exists.7
