A social semiotic perspective on literacy is explicitly political. Because it does not see meaning as inherent in texts, but rather in how they are used and inter­ preted in communities, it points outward to the social functions of texts and not just inward to their formal patterns. Because it sees meaning-making not as an in­ terior mental process but as an ecological, material process in an emergent self-organizing system larger than the isolated organism, it poses questions about the social and material effects of texts and not just about the organismic physiology of their production or interpretation.
