Número cero by Umberto Eco( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 188 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

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 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«Cuando yo era joven, había una diferencia importante entre ser famosos y estar en boca de todos. La mayoría querían ser famosos por ser el mejor deportista o la mejor bailarina, pero a nadie le gustaba estar en boca de todos por ser el cornudo del pueblo o una puta de poca monta# en el futuro esta diferencia ya no existirá: con tal de que alguien nos mire y hable de nosotros, estaremos dispuestos a todo.»Estas palabras son un buen ejemplo de lo que nos ofrece De la estupidez a la locura, una serie de artioculos que Umberto Eco publicó en prensa a lo largo de quince an̋os y selección personalmente poco antes de dejarnos. Por estas piezas se pasean hombres y mujeres de relevancia internacional, pero también algunos de los personajes de ficción más amados por Eco, como James Bond o los protagonistas de algunos de sus cómics favoritos. Y vuelve, como siempre, la nostalgia por el pasado perdido, la reflexión irónica sobre el poder y sus instrumentos, y la crítica a un consumismo que nos deja llenos de objetos y vacíos de ideas. Genio, sabiduría y sentido del humor: de todo hay en este libro, una despedida digna de un gran maestro

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
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( )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in Spanish and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Impishly witty and ingeniously irreverent" essays on topics from cell phones to librarians, by the author of The Name of the Rose and Foucault's Pendulum (The Atlantic Monthly). A cosmopolitan curmudgeon the Los Angeles Times called "the Andy Rooney of academia"--known for both nonfiction and novels that have become blockbuster New York Times bestsellers--Umberto Eco takes readers on "a delightful romp through the absurdities of modern life" (Publishers Weekly) as he journeys around the world and into his own wildly adventurous mind. From the mundane details of getting around on Amtrak or in the back of a cab, to reflections on computer jargon and soccer fans, to more important issues like the effects of mass media and consumer civilization--not to mention the challenges of trying to refrigerate an expensive piece of fish at an English hotel--this renowned writer, semiotician, and philosopher provides "an uncanny combination of the profound and the profane" (San Francisco Chronicle). "Eco entertains with his clever reflections and with his unique persona."--Kirkus Reviews Translated from the Italian by William Weaver

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
