Umberto Eco: 5 January 1932 – 19 February 2016

Another loss: Umberto Eco died yesterday.

Books are not made to be believed, but to be subjected to inquiry. When we consider a book, we mustn’t ask ourselves what it says but what it means……… Umberto Eco.

Three of his books I really enjoyed.

    1. Thanks,
      I liked his way of expressing himself with what could be quite cutting remarks (well deserved in a lot of cases) he could insult & make it look like constructive criticism 🙂
      His books were just as insightful – a sad loss.

      David.
