Toda mirada de la realidad, sea crítica y cotidiana, no es parte del arbitrio del pensamiento, de manera emotiva y desorganizada. Toda forma de comunicación, de escritura y por tanto de lectura guarda una lógica minuciosa, casi insoportable, pero que hace el mundo más sencillo.
Umberto Eco con la estructura ausente salva todas las distancias para un crítico, detallando con presteza los riesgos posmodernos de la semiotización del referente, de esos tangibles, que llamamos en cada ejemplo, casa, pe

I read this in a translation but couldn't find that edition here, so commenting on the original Italian edition.

This is a book from 1968, the time of flourishing of "continental philosophy," and it is a mix of bits from theory of information with a thick undigestible filling of then-fashionable "discourse." Endless citations (Lacan, Derrida e tutti quanti), juggling of terms, incredibly meaningless propositions, incredibly pretentious hints and allusions. I was really shaking my head in disbeli

Recommends it for: all those interested in semiotic theory
a thorough and somewhat advanced introduction to semiotic theory. a bit long and hard to get through, especially in a foreign language.

you could pick and choose the parts you read according to the objects of analysis you're interested. i skipped the part on architecture, for example.

Shelves: semiotics
Had to read Eco for my Semitics class. I must say Eco explains a whole new angle in semiotics and discusses the limits of semiology from the definitions of Charles Peirce and Saussure.
