This collection of essays is an erudite, detailed inquiry into the philosophy of mind and language. Professor Eco tackles Kant's question, How does the mind transform the manifold of sense perceptions into knowledge? As Eco puts it, What would Kant have done had he come upon a platypus? Translated from the Italian by Alastair McEwen.
