Description This paper deals with the possibility of using ostension in judicial process. It is worth to introduce it to the audience because it is an important part of Czech understanding of semiotics and because this theoretical issue can be used in a very practical way. In the first part of this contribution the Prague Circle, the famous Czech school of semiotics, will be introduced. In the next part the mechanism of ostension will be defined and explained. The main emphasis will be set on Osolsobě’s view on ostension. In the final part I would like to focus on the possibilities of the practical use of the theory of ostension in the judicial process.
