Interpretation and Overinterpretation (Tanner Lectures in Human Values)

Umberto Eco


the bounds of interpretation--what a textual content can truly be acknowledged to mean--are of double curiosity to a semiotician whose personal novels' exciting complexity has provoked his readers into excessive 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 idea 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 every one upload a particular standpoint in this contentious subject, contributing to a distinct alternate of principles between many of the top-rated and most enjoyable theorists within the box.
