And when they do, he will follow Belbo’s lead, refusing to give them any clues, refusing to create a lie.

Das Foucaultsche Pendel

It reminded me of Arthur C. Back to home page Return to top. According to Ardenti’s calculations, the Templars should have taken over the world in ; evidently the plan has been interrupted.

La grandezza de Il Pendolo di Foucault sta qui: La terra ruotava ma il luogo ove il filo era ancorato era l’unico punto fisso dell’universo.

Eco does so, however, from a much more critical perspective; Foucault is more a satire on the futility of conspiracy theories and those who believe them, rather than an attempt to proliferate such beliefs. And that is the biggest problem I had with this story; it could have been so much better if it had been trimmed down to its essentials, and as any good fiction writer knows, the more sparing a story, the greater its impact.


If you add 1, 1, 4 and 6, you get 12, which when added, comes to 3. This is semi idiotic!!! Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the balance is not paid in full within 6 months.

Casaubon escapes the museum through the Paris sewers, eventually fleeing to the countryside villa where Belbo had grown up. This concept and phrase is usually attributed to the semiotician Saussure.

It’s a story that some have compared to The Da Vinci Code, with the observation that the latter is Foucalt’s Pendulum for morons. The writing is quite nice. Fortunately it doesn’t smash us as well, because by now we understand how Foucault’s Pendulum works, and foucaulfsche got off the couch just in time.

Thus The Plan is born. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The Goldfinch 3 stars 5.

I went into the book knowing it was about Secret Societies and conspiracy theories, but as I kept reading the book, I started to think it was real. Only Eco can write beyond a grade school level–and gets his facts right. Also, considering the fact that the author and the three protagonists are all multilingual intellectuals with doctorates in literature and medieval history, it would help to be similarly educated.


Let’s connect all these things, using the same half-mad logic as the authors of these books, into one grand design. Starts with a Latin coucaultsche and a dramatic, yet scientific description of the Foucault’s pendulum.

Ships from the UK. Hell, at first I enjoyed researching lendel I so loved The Name of the Rose!!! Open Preview See a Problem? Said inability is part of the reason why he decides to become a literary editor: Erste deutsche Ausgabe Book condition: Is that it, Professor?

But, scary as it seems, dco longer they work with the story, the more they realize that there a Casaubon, Belbo and Diotallevi work for a vanity publisher in Milan, and they are used to reading manuscripts with conspiracy theories.

I loved The Name of the Rose. E’ quindi un romanzo per il quale, bisogna dirlo, si deve essere “attrezzati”.
