    Número cero by Umberto Eco( Book )

    12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    Somebody preparing a newspaper intended, rather than to information, to blackmail... An editor, paranoid, wandering around a haunted Milan (or a hallucination of a normal Milan), traces the history of fifty years against the backdrop of a plan built around the sulfurous rotten corpse of a pseudo Mussolini. And in the shadows... the assassination of Pope Luciani, the coup of Junio Valerio Borghese, the CIA, the terrorists caught red handled by private business offices, vent years of massacres and false leads, a set of inexplicable facts that seem invented until a BBC interview does not prove that they are true, or at least they are now confessed by their authors. And then a body that comes in suddenly in the closest and infamous street in Milan. A slender love story between two protagonists, losers by nature, a failed ghost writer and a disturbing girl are to help one of their families, she dropped out of college and has specialized in the gossip of affectionate friendships, but still crying on the second movement of the Seventh Beethoven. A perfect manual for bad journalism that the reader does not know whether it is all gradually invented or merely repeated live. A story that takes place in 1992 in which foreshadow many mysteries and follies of the next two decades, even as the two protagonists think that the nightmare is over. A bitter and grotesque story that takes place in Europe since the end of the war to the present day.--cataloger's translation of publisher's or seller's website

    Decir casi lo mismo by Umberto Eco( Book )

    15 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    Qué quiere decir traducir? La primera respuesta, "decir lo mismo en otra lengua", sería una buena respuesta, y también consolatoria, si no fuera porque, en primer lugar, tenemos muchos problemas para establecer qué significa "decir lo mismo", así como tampoco sabríamos dar una respuesta satisfactoria para todas esas operaciones que llamamos paráfrasis, definición, explicación, reformulación, por no hablar de las pretendidas sustituciones sinonímicas. En segundo lugar, porque no sabemos qué es el "lo", esto es, ante un texto no sabemos lo que debemos traducir. Y, por último, porque en algunos casos abrigamos serias dudas sobre lo que quiere decir

    De la estupidez a la locura : cómo vivir en un mundo sin rumbo by Umberto Eco( Book )

    2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    "When I was young, there was a distinct difference between being famous and having everybody know you for something. The majority wanted to be famous for being the best soccer player or for being a great ballerina, but nobody liked to be talked about around town for having been cheated on, or for being a two-bit broad. In the future there won't be any difference between these two, as long as anyone so much as looks at us, we will be willing to do anything." This is a great example of what From Stupidity to Insanity offers us, a series of newspaper articles that Umberto Eco published throughout fifteen years, and ones that he personally selected before his death. Within these pages you will find internationally renown celebrities and also some of Eco's most beloved fictional characters like James Bond and some comic characters. He brings back, as he often did, the yearning for the past, an ironic reflection about power, and criticism of an ever growing consumption mentality that leave us full of things but empty of ideas. Genius, wisdom, and sense of humor all take form in this book, a worthy farewell to a great teacher
    On literature by Umberto Eco( Book )

    3 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    In this collection of essays and addresses delivered over the course of his illustrious career, Umberto Eco seeks "to understand the chemistry of [his] passion" for the word. From musings on Ptolemy and "the force of the false" to reflections on the experimental writing of Borges and Joyce, Eco's luminous intelligence and encyclopedic knowledge are on dazzling display throughout. And when he reveals his own ambitions and superstitions, his authorial anxieties and fears, one feels like a secret sharer in the garden of literature to which he so often alludes. Remarkably accessible and unfailingly stimulating, this collection exhibits the diversity of interests and the depth of knowledge that have made Eco one of the world's leading writers

    How to travel with a salmon & other essays by Umberto Eco( )

    6 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    How to Travel with a Salmon is a highly engaging collection of what Umberto Eco calls his diario minimo - minimal diaries - after the magazine column in which he began "pursuing the pathways of parody." These essays, written in the late eighties and early nineties, are his playful but unfailingly accurate takes on militarism, computer jargon, Westerns, art criticism, librarians, bureaucrats, meals on airplanes, Amtrak trains, bad coffee, maniacal taxi drivers, express mail, 33-function watches, fax machines and cellular phones, pornography, soccer fans, academia, and - last but definitely not least - the author's own self. How to Travel with a Salmon gives us Umberto Eco's acute vision of the absurdities of modern life

    Semiotics and the philosophy of language by Umberto Eco( )

    1 edition published in 1990 in Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    Comment se guider dans le labyrinthe séculaire, celui de la Bibliothèque de Babel? La réflexion s'organise autour d'une série de termes classiques (tels que signe, métaphore, symbole, code, signifié) qui ont été étudiés soit par la philosophie du langage, soit par la sémiotique. L'unité du propos est assurée par deux thèses principales : d'abord, une sémiotique générale représente la forme contemporaine d'une philosophie des langages (et on pourrait soutenir que beaucoup de philosophes, d'Aristote aux stoïciens, de saint Augustin à Locke, de Leibniz à Husserl, ont fait de la sémiotique, et de la meilleure) ; ensuite, la crise actuelle de ce champ théorique peut être comprise et dépassée à travers une reconstruction historique. -- Back cover
    Construir al enemigo ; y otros escritos by Umberto Eco( Book )

    2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    En su prólogo, Umberto Eco habla de estas piezas como "textos de ocasión", es decir, escritos que nacieron de su encargo o del puro divertimento. Cierto, pero cuando quien trabaja de ese modo es un gran maestro, cada frase se convierte en un pequeño regalo para el lector. El libro arranca con el texto titulado "Construir al enemigo", donde se insiste en las bondades de tener siempre a mano a un rival a quien descargar nuestras debilidades o faltas y, si ese rival no existe, pues habrá que crearlo. Le siguen otros textos que cabalgan de Dan Brown a Barak Obama y Angela Merkel, y una espléndida pieza que aborda el tema de Wikileaks, invitándonos a reflexionar sobre el poder del silencio en una sociedad donde el escándalo es moneda corriente. En otros escritos sale a la luz la corrupción política italiana, aliñada con el cuerpo de mujeres hermosas y dispuestas a triunfar, pero alrededor de este tema tan manido el professore hila un sagaz discurso sobre el ruido mediático, especialmente creado desde los centros de poder para distraer al ciudadano medio y ocultar otras noticias importantes. Y de la política pasamos al Ulises, de Joyce, para descubrir una nueva opinión sobre esta novela que muchos mientan y pocos han leído. Resumiendo, Eco tiene edad y condición para hablar de casi todo, enlazando temas que en apariencia parecen muy lejanos, y Construir al enemigo es el mejor ejemplo de una inteligencia privilegiada puesta al servicio de esos lectores que a la vida le piden algo más que titulares de periódico -- Contracarátula
