Eco discusses his interest in East/West dialogue as a means of facilitating international communication and understanding. In these five essays the Italian semiotician reflects on war, immigration, media, fundamentalism and the nature of evil. From talks he gave at conferences and from articles on current affairs, Eco offers his clear and decisive thoughts. Translated by Alastair McEwen from Cinque scritti morali (1997) ; xii, 111,  pages.
