Het nulnummer by Umberto Eco( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 101 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

Tra menzogna e ironia by Umberto Eco( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quattro letture che analizzano il tema della menzogna e dell'ironia in Cagliostro, Manzoni, Campanile e Hugo Pratt. Cagliostro mente con la parola e con il suo comportamento, così come menzognere sono le leggende nate intorno alla sua figura. Manzoni mostra il divario tra linguaggio verbale (fonte di menzogna) e segni naturali, facendo ironia somma col linguaggio letterario, così come avviene in Campanile che mente proprio per gioco. Anche Pratt usa la finzione come gioco fantastico e ironico. Quattro testi di Eco che con sottile divertimento intellettuale ci offrono una modalità di lettura di personaggi della cultura contemporanea e della storia

Semiotics and the philosophy of language by Umberto Eco( )

1 edition published in 1990 in Spanish and held by 11 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
Inventing the enemy and other occasional writings by Umberto Eco( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 8 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
Kant and the platypus : essays on language and cognition by Umberto Eco( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these essays, Umberto Eco explores in depth such subjects as perception, the relationship between language and experience, and iconism that he only touched on in A Theory of Semiotics. Forgoing a formal, systematic treatment, Eco engages in a series of explorations based on common sense, from which flow an abundance of illustrative fables, often with animals as protagonists. Among the characters, a position of prominence is reserved for the platypus, which appears to have been created specifically to "put the cat among the pigeons" as far as many theories of knowledge are concerned."--Jacket
De los nombres propios y su traducción by Helena Lozano Miralles( Book )

Six walks in the fictional woods by Umberto Eco( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Come stroll with me through the leafy glades of narrative ..." With Umberto Eco as companion and guide, who could resist such an invitation? In this exhilarating book, we accompany him as he explores the intricacies of fictional form and method. Eco draws us in by means of a novelist's techniques, making us his collaborators in the creation of his text and in the investigation of some of fiction's most basic mechanisms. How does a text signal the type of reader it wants, and how does it "stage" for us, through its style and voice, a certain version of the author? What is the relation between this "model reader" and "model author"? How does narrative lead us on, persuade us to lose ourselves in its depths?
