review à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ø Umberto Eco Kant e l'ornitorinco review ¾ 106 How do we know a cat is a cat And why do we call it a cat How much of our perception of things is based on cognitive ability and how much on linguistic resources Here in six remarkable. This book is hard to read Eco uses many languages long complex sentences and a peculiar strain of humor which combine to make a complex topic extremely hard to understand But it also makes it highly readable Which is fortunate because I think this is a really important topic and this is the only book I ve read that addresses it directly If you make it all the way through you ll come away with a deeper understanding of how people come to understand things and how they communicate those things to other humans That might seem like common sense but this book is a great example of how taking a philosophical approach to something that seems obvious can lead you to a deeper understanding I use what I learned ever day It s changed the way I approach people That s about all you can ask from a bookIf you read this and don t have a background in semiotics like myself my advice is to just run through it without stopping to look up ever word you don t understand Let is wash over you and patterns will emerge that make it clear what is going on It wont be easy but it will be rewarding

review à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ø Umberto Eco Kant e l'ornitorinco review ¾ 106 G on issues that affect us every day At once philosophical and amusing Kant and the Platypus is a tour of the world of our senses told by a master of knowing what is real and what is no. I happen to like much of what I have read from Umberto Eco 1 and this book is no exception to that general enjoyment Unlike many people in his field Eco had a firm grasp of the fact that communication and cognition do not operate by building castles in the air but have to address a reality that may not be perfectly understood but that provides a test of the mental theories that various people or groups make This book is full of humorous references to the difficulty of understanding the platypus and the challenge such an animal possesses when it comes to proper categorization as an egg laying animal with a duckbill that nevertheless otherwise resembles river dwelling mammals The author also has something interesting to say about the development of the model of the horse by the Aztecs who encountered Montezuma and how it was the experience of the Spanish conuest cut off the chance that the Aztecs and their leaders had to respond to the reality of the horse and best deal with it as an element of the Spanish military efforts These and other examples demonstrate Eco s profound interest in the relationship between reality and efforts to understand it and communicate about itThis book of nearly 400 pages is divided into six chapters and numerous section within each chapter The first chapter looks at the uestion of being and discusses the relationship between language and reality and how we talk about and deal with the problem of being 1 After that the author discusses Kant Pierce and the platypus with a look at how the platypus reputation was similar to the way that Polo claimed that the rhino was a unicorn 2 The third essay looks at the relationship between cognitive types and nuclear and molar content 3 spending special time on stories about animals like the horse and oysters as well as a hilarious look at the theory of knowledge among angels that led to success for the archangel Gabriel There is a chapter on the place of the platypus between dictionary and encyclopedia pointing out the problem of the negotiation of definitions 4 After that the author provides a chapter that looks at the nature of reference and contract 5 before closing the main contents of the book with a debate on iconism and reality 6 after which there are endnotes a collection of works cited and an indexOne thing this author does well is demonstrate that semiotics need not be divorced from other fields but that it can provide an important link between how we think and the external world that we have to deal with By using animals including the horse and platypus as heroes of a journey into semiotics and its connections with other fields the author does a good job at making the material relatable and deeply amusing Platypuses for example are generally funny animals because of their mosaic nature and the long time it took to understand how it was that an egg laying mammal with milk glands that acted like sweat glands than like the nipples of most mammals ended up still being a mammal The word for horse in nahuatl was originally a word that was used to refer to deer before the surviving Aztecs adopted words related to the Spanish caballo What we know or what we think we know and what is present challenges to our language as our understanding is shaped by our experiences while also shaping the way we interpret the reality around us If you want an enjoyable collection of essays about semiotics this is certainly a worthwhile one1 See for example
