    When it comes to novels the size of bricks I have to admit to being a bit of a lightweight only reading a handful of books over 600 pages long and always enter with some trepidation Eco's Foucault's Pendulum is not uite brick big but then it doesn't look like it's been on a diet eitherIn terms of sheer scope and passionate ambition this really is something and it felt like a history lesson and a novel combined so kudos thereThis

Il pendolo di Foucault

о утвърди славата на италианския културолог Умберто Еко като един от най четените романисти в света през последните годин?. I read a lot and the people around me are used to seeing a new book in my hand every day or couple of days Naturally they ask me what I m reading usually in a way that implies I should divulge than just the title and the author which are plainly visible on the cover How do I respond when I m reading something so sublime and transcendental as Foucault s Pendulum It defies ordinary description of plot because Umberto Eco has again unified his narrative with his themes and characters to create a complex masterpiece Even the hook on the back of my paperback edition doesn t do it justiceAt its core Foucault s Pendulum is a fable about conspiracies It is a cautionary tale that demonstrates what happens when people begin to believe in conspiracy theories lending credence lends life which can have unfortunate conseuences for everyone involved The main characters begin as sceptics working for a publishing house that s allied with a vanity press who begin constructing a fictitious Plan by connecting seemingly disparate historical facts When organizations and individuals begin showing up seeming to be acting in accordance with this Plan however our protagonists realize that if you make up a Plan even a false one someone might try to execute itThis book is not about conspiracy theories though It has been compared to The Da Vinci Code and of course there are similarities both books deal with Templar mythology for instance Foucault s Pendulum is so much though It isn t a mystery about a conspiracy theory it s a mystery that looks into the effects of conspiracy theories on otherwise rational scholarly people The narrative parallels the characters journey in its own structure beginning with a strong foundation in logical principles and eventually transforming into a very spiritual emotional textWe have so many books based on the premise that such and such conspiracy theory is actually valid Here the theories are all fictitious it begins as a harmless game among three people determined to mock conspiracy theories and the obsession with finding hidden meaning through occultism The theory only becomes real because people begin believing in it they begin seeing meaning where before there was nothing no relationship Characters emerge ones we re familiar with from prior in the book who appear to have a part in this Plan and think it has been in operation for centuries These characters are in some ways created by their fellow characters our protagonists Foucault s Pendulum is very meta authorial in that respect much like Sophie s WorldEco gives us an unreliable narrator so that we re forced to think critically about the story we re given and wonder how much is true and how much may be the feverish imaginings of an unbalanced misguided mind The narrator is named Casaubon and I m very glad I read Middlemarch before reading this book Casaubon is sort of like his namesake from Middlemarch who devotes his life to the syncretic task of unifying human myths In Foucault s Pendulum Casaubon and his friends Belbo and Diotallevi sift through the slush of conspiracy lunatics Diabolicals to compile a master theory a Plan spun around the framework of the dissolution of the Knights Templar As they come to believe in the reality of their own Plan the world around them changes becomes darker and sinister All conflicts in this book even the external ones are ultimately internal created from our characters own imaginations The fact that some of these internal conflicts manifest externally through the antagonism of rivals like Colonel Ardenti or Agli gives the story plenty of variety In between we get glimpses of Belbo s childhood in rural Italy and Eco mentions both historical and contemporary Italian politics As an outsider I found this part of the book fascinating since I m totally unfamiliar with Italian history or even how its citizens were affected by the rise of fascism and their time under Mussolini That s what I like so much about Eco he reminds me that I m steeped in my own ignorance but he doesn t condescend me for it Instead he forces me to meet him on his intellectual levelOne thing that makes Foucault s Pendulum so transcendental is the fact that it s rife with allusions to medieval and Enlightenment history and philosophy arcane rituals and religions and other esoteric and occult phenomena You d practically need a degree in these areas like Eco has to understand it all without a reference book I don t and I admit I got lost at times Almost every page is filled with this historical references particularly when Casaubon Belbo and Diotallevi are thick in their discussions of the Plan Consider that for a moment I got lost in the historical detail of the book yet I m still giving it five stars That s how good it is even its flaws are strengthsStill the tendency of this text toward tones academic will turn some people off the book It may not be for everyone If you find yourself reading my review and thinking Hmm this sounds like it is right for me however don t wait Go out and get this book now Read it and then read it again I will some day because Foucault s Pendulum is one of those books where you need to read it through several times to grasp its complexity And every reading will be its own reward as reading should be

Трима приятели два противодействащи заговора една демонична секта едно махало убиец в сянката на Айфеловата кула и още мн?. This book consists of predominantly two things 1 Endless dialogue by mentally unbalanced paranoid conspiracy theorists 2 Endless dialogue by scholars who study mentally unbalanced paranoid conspiracy theorists This is not a bad book but its not an easy read and not really a particularly enjoyable one My enjoyment or lack thereof was tempered by the fact that I was apparently trying to read one story but the author was trying to tell a different one Put another way I was trying to read about plot but the author was trying to write about person Conceptually this book is fascinating but the execution was wanting again this may be because Eco was trying to tell a different story than I wanted to readMany others describe this book as thrilling or a roller coaster ride but it s not It s supposed to be I think but the tension is lost in the morass of dialogue and background In the end rather than being a book about conspiracy theorists which is what 90% of the text is about it s almost a book about self image It does show how conspiracy theorists can make any idea self prophecisizing sp but it could have been done in a much cleaner approachable fashion

Summary Il pendolo di Foucault

?го съставки в алхимичната смес на тайнствената история на мистиката на всички времена След Името на розатаМахалото на Фук. Descartes said Cogito ergo sumEco says I seek meaning therefore I am humanIt s very hard to succinctly describe exactly what this novel is From looking at the plot description you may be forgiven for assuming that it is a book like Holy Blood Holy Grail by Michael Baigent Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln or Dan Brown s The Da Vinci Code There is an overlap in the fact that all three books deal with conspiracies that revolve around the mystical and mythical order of the Knight s Templar view spoiler who were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders and were among the most prominent actors of Christian finance The organization existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle AgesOfficially endorsed by the Catholic Church around 1129 the Order became a favoured charity throughout Christendom and grew rapidly in membership and power Templar knights in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades Non combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom innovating financial techniues that were an early form of banking and building fortifications across Europe and the Holy LandThe Templars existence was tied closely to the Crusades when the Holy Land was lost support for the Order faded Rumours about the Templars secret initiation ceremony created mistrust and King Philip IV of France deeply in debt to the Order took advantage of the situation In 1307 many of the Order s members in France were arrested tortured into giving false confessions and then burned at the stake Under pressure from King Philip Pope Clement V disbanded the Order in 1312 The abrupt disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends which have kept the Templar name alive into the modern day See hide spoiler
