So Kant states in his Anthropology from a Pragmatic Point of View (1798) that the process of Enlightenment can lead to a full realization of man. Not the individual person but mankind as a whole fulfils its rational nature by realizing the goals it sets itself. Other rational philosophers, such as Hegel and Schelling, articulate an anthropology in which the goal is a selfconsciousness of the Spirit. Biological anthropology traces the essence of man back to his biological substance. Then man should be understood at the natural level, without crude opposition between man and animal (as in the rational anthropology).

This is the second key argument for the dissolution of the sign. The notion of value . . shows us that it is a great mistake to consider a sign as nothing more than the combination of a certain sound and a certain concept. To think of a sign as nothing more would be to isolate it from the system to which it belongs. It would be to suppose that a start could be made with individual signs, and a system constructed by putting them together.
