Interpretation and Overinterpretation (Tanner Lectures in Human Values)

Umberto Eco


the bounds of interpretation--what a textual content can truly be stated to mean--are of double curiosity to a semiotician whose personal novels' fascinating complexity has provoked his readers into extreme hypothesis as to their that means. Eco's illuminating and often hilarious dialogue levels from Dante to The identify of the Rose, Foucault's Pendulum, to Chomsky and Derrida, and bears all of the hallmarks of his inimitable own variety. 3 of the world's best figures in philosophy, literary thought and feedback soak up the problem of moving into debate with Eco at the query of interpretation. Richard Rorty, Jonathan Culler and Christine Brooke-Rose each one upload a particular standpoint in this contentious subject, contributing to a different alternate of rules between the various most excellent and most enjoyable theorists within the box.
