Reviews

"Whether discussing the relationship between our knowledge and God, abortion, stem cells, embryos, the right to life, or reviews of James Joyce's Ulysses by fascist journalists of the 1920s and 1930s, this collection gleams with clarity, depth and wisdom" * The Good Book Guide *
"For the sheer depth and clarity of his learning and wisdom, Eco has no living rival" * Harpers Baazar *
"[A] philosophical football match that encompasses myth, literature and history... Discursive, grandiose, witty stuff from the quintessential savvy professor" * Monocle *
