Semiosis is viewed here as an element of the social process which is dialectically related to others. And there are three semiotic or: Some events consist almost entirely of texts e.
It is normative critique in that does not simply describe existing realities but also evaluates them, assesses the extent to which they match up to various values which are taken more or less contentiously to be fundamental for just or decent societies e.

Each of these has significant semiotic aspects. Stage 4 moves the analysis from negative to faircllough critique: Although one might argue that these are to an extent endemic in all forms of capitalism, one might also argue that forms of capitalism have differed markedly in chouliaraaki extent to which they have mitigated these tendencies and dangers, which would indicate that it is in principle possible for a new form of capitalism which mitigates the wrongs of neo-liberalism to emerge, though that leaves open the question of whether it is practicable in existing conditions.

To turn society in a different direction, markets will have to be regulated and trammeled by social forces — the state and civil society. Discourses which originate in some particular social field or institution e. The starting point for a better future is the simple recognition that the Good Society is incompatible with market fundamentalism.
A specifically semiotic focus would include, in the case of the crisis, ways in which the discourses, narratives, arguments etc. Constructing objects of research is a trans- disciplinary process, so we would need to decide which relevant bodies of social science and theory to engage with.

The social process can be seen as the interplay between three levels of social reality: Trans-disciplinary analysis of the contemporary political-economic situation might suggest that the neoliberal order, and Discourse, have been weakened to the point that the obstacles to surpassing it that one might have identified a few years ago are much less daunting.
