Summary/Abstract: This paper provides a short overview of anticipation as a field of enquiry that is closely related to semiotic biology. Anticipation can be seen as addressing both empirically and conceptually certain key features of (bio)semiotic processes, including their open-ended and non-deterministic structure, (self-)referential and relational features, contingency and constructiveness. Outlines are given of some main theoretical frameworks and sources informing current anticipation research. The parallel (and complementarity) between independently developed foundational traditions is highlighted, and seen as a relevant fi eld of future analysis.
