The thesis of this paper is that the problem of symbol – i.e. the problem of what its nature and its logic are – needs, to be solved, to deal with two basic categories: the category of mediation and the category of incarnation. More precisely, what I would like to argue is that the symbol can perform its basic function of mediation as it is based on a logic of incarnation. Unlike the sign, the symbol is in fact understandable as the paradoxical incarnation of two signifiers.
