I'm fine with Eco's thoughts on it, because he doesn't fall into the self-refuting nonsense of relativism that characterizes, say, Derrida and Foucault.
"We feel safe when we read what we recognise, what does not challenge our way of thinking.... a steady acceptance of pre-arranged patterns leads to the inability to question what we are told."

Hm. Just read Foucault's Pendulum a while back. I intend to get on to this eventually. - 23/07/2010 07:24:39 AM 1282 Views
I started Foucault's Pendulum just last night. I know Tom loved it; what do you think? - 23/07/2010 07:34:28 AM 1207 Views

It even made me respect postmodernism! Well, a little. Eco's variant. - 23/07/2010 11:22:02 AM 1183 Views
