Title: Uncovering Hidden Meanings In Legal Discourse On The Elderly: A Semioethical Perspective
Author: Novaes-Pinto
RD; Oliveira
Abstract: Aging is a theme that has interested philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, educators, and scientists from several fields, including linguistics and semiotics, in which we have been developing our works and to which we hope to contribute with this article. In our text, especially dedicated to analyzing the (hidden) meanings underlying legal discourses to protect the elderly, we link our reflection to concepts developed in the sphere of semiotics and semioethics, with special reference to works by Susan Petrilli and Augusto Ponzio, strongly influenced, in turn, by authors such as Mikhail Bakhtin. Concerning legal discourse, we have chosen to concentrate on the topic related to violence, which reveals the very sad reality of how society treats their elders, which demands the existence of specific laws. We also base our discussion on data provided by Brazilian institutions such as IBGE and refer to the Brazilian Constitution and national policies especially written for the elderly, as well as on the reflections of Brazilian authors who have dedicated their lives to this field of study.
