Umberto Eco's final collection of essays takes up again the ideas that have preoccupied him throughout his thinking and writing life; the roots of our civilisation, changing ideas of beauty, our obsession with conspiracies and the emblematic heroes of the great narrative. These wide- ranging, entertaining and intellectual pieces are accompanied by beautiful reproductions of the art he discusses.
