    […] The Infinity of Lists The Infinity of Lists: Reflecting on this enormous trove of human achievements, in his lyrical intellectual style Eco has embarked on an investigation of the phenomenon of cataloging and collecting. From Homer to Joyce to Borges, Eco explores the crucial issue of the coherence of a classification system at the crossroads of epistemology, semiology and information science. For our book purposes, this essay gives an important contribution to the topic/heuristic of consistency (see Table of contents). […]

    Amazon has a Kindle version, but I’m not sure about MK’s plans when it
    comes to general e-book availability. I’ll pass your question up to our
    editors: let’s see if we can shed some light on this.

    […] Basta una frase per cogliere il cuore del libro: “L’informazione si trova ovunque. Sempre più spesso, molte delle nostre attività quotidiane richiedono non solo di spostarci tra diversi media, ma anche di passare dall’ambiente digitale all’ambiente fisico, e viceversa. Attività quali il calcolo, la ricerca, l’interazione sono sempre più necessarie. E’ tempo di andare oltre lo schermo del computer verso la progettazione di spazi informativi in questi nuovi, onnipresenti ecosistemi” (questo è l’elenco degli argomenti trattati). […]
