Description
This anthology covers a wide range of topics on which Umberto Eco has written and lectured for the past ten years, from a disquisition on the theme that runs through his novel The Prague Cemetery—every country needs an enemy, and if it doesn't have one, must invent it—to a discussion of ideas that inspired earlier novels like The Name of the Rose and Foucault's Pendulum. Along the way, he takes us on an exploration of lost islands, mythical realms, and the medieval world; sheds light on the indignant reviews of James Joyce's Ulysses by fascist journalists of the 1920s and 30s; and provides a lively examination of Saint Thomas Aquinas's notions about the soul of an unborn child.
