Product description

Review

"From the Tree to the Labyrinth" is a sort of "summa" of one of our most important thinkers on matters of language, signification, and interpretation. It illuminates all of Umberto Eco s earlier work by providing a great deal of the historical contextualization for his arguments. It provides important and fruitful ways of thinking about the organization of knowledge and of our attitudes towards it. It intervenes in a number of debates in the philosophy of language and in linguistics. It contains a myriad of insights on medieval thinkers, Kant, and Peirce, to mention but a few. This is a book that will enjoy a wide readership.--Wlad Godzich, University of California, Santa Cruz"
