Abstract

Countless theories have marked the thinking and imagining of colour, in which symbolic values and scientific methods cross, sometimes in a heterogeneous manner. Semiotics, for its part, has developed many reflections on colour, to such an extent that a semiotics of colour seems even to be set. However, taking in consideration the limits faced by colour description, the significance of colour phenomenological definition in perception, and the determination of its value with respect to the relationships that colour establishes in a given environment, this analysis aims to delve into the complexity at stake with regard to colour, and give the impulse to reformulate, perhaps, the way to approach it in semiotic research.
