Death of Umberto Eco

In case anyone did not take notice, the towering public intellectual Umberto Eco has passed away.

Not only was he an incredible scholar, specifically in hermeneutics, literary criticism, and semiotics, he was also a prolific writer of fiction, having written the wildly popular novel The Name of the Rose, which was made into a movie starring Sean Connery. And, he also wrote a really amazing How To book on writing a thesis.

Our world is a little less interesting now.

I have never gotten around to reading that book. I saw the film years ago and wanted to read it.

I need to put it back on my list.

I had it on my list as well, for a while. I remember hanging with John and he bought it at a little bookstore, and it reminded me (again) I needed to read it.

Downloaded two nights ago on Kindle (for like 6 bucks), so now I've gotta finally do it!

Yeah that is such a great bookstore. His non-fiction work is also great: Serendipities, Adventures in Hyperreality, Inventing the Enemy, Semiotics and the Phil of Language, How toTravel With a Salmon. Brilliant, bold, wise.
