From the Tree to the Labyrinth: Historical Studies on the Sign and Interpretation
The way we create and organize knowledge is the theme of From the Tree to the Labyrinth, a major achievement by one of the world's foremost thinkers on language and interpretation. Umberto Eco begins by arguing that our familiar system of classification by genus and species derives from the Neo-Platonist idea of a "tree of knowledge." He then moves to the idea of the dictionary, which-like a tree whose trunk anchors a great hierarchy of branching categories-orders knowledge into a matrix of definitions. In Eco's view, though, the dictionary is too rigid: it turns knowledge into a closed system.

A more flexible organizational scheme is the encyclopedia, which-instead of resembling a tree with finite branches-offers a labyrinth of never-ending pathways. Presenting knowledge as a network of interlinked relationships, the encyclopedia sacrifices humankind's dream of possessing absolute knowledge, but in compensation we gain the freedom to pursue an infinity of new connections and meanings.

Moving effortlessly from analyses of Aristotle and James Joyce to the philosophical difficulties of telling dogs from cats, Eco demonstrates time and again his inimitable ability to bridge ancient, medieval, and modern modes of thought. From the Tree to the Labyrinth is a brilliant illustration of Eco's longstanding argument that problems of interpretation can be solved only in historical context.

Comments From Other Readers

"I taught myself to crochet when I was 7 and that's been my niche ever since. I was looking for a challenge and a co-worker suggested that knitting might be a great cross over. I found it very easy to transition over to. The patterns in this book were fantastic! I loved the little ducky! I think the pictures were a huge help as well. I might just have to put my hook away for a little while!" – Eve (Florida, US)

"I'm a guy. Knitting to me has been for little old ladies. I recently had an accident though and experienced some head trauma. As a result, I've had difficulty with some of my motor functions. My physical therapist actually suggested knitting. I can't knock it until I try to so I went with my sister who knits and picked out some stuff. My first project was a beanie. I think the thing that worked for me was that if I messed up I could just pull it out and start over. After a few weeks of knitting for an hour or more a day, my therapist noted positive changes. This book was a big part of that. I found it easy to follow, even for someone that never touched a knitting needle before." – Bryan (Colorado, US)

Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction

FREEDownload : Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction

Timothy Gowers, "Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction"
English | ISBN: 0192853619 | 2002 | PDF, EPUB, MOBI | 160 pages | 6 MB

Mathematics: A Very Short Introduction
The aim of this book is to explain, carefully but not technically, the differences between advanced, research-level mathematics, and the sort of mathematics we learn at school. The most fundamental differences are philosophical, and readers of this book will emerge with a clearer understanding of paradoxical-sounding concepts such as infinity, curved space, and imaginary numbers.

The first few chapters are about general aspects of mathematical thought. These are followed by discussions of more specific topics, and the book closes with a chapter answering common sociological questions about the mathematical community (such as "Is it true that mathematicians burn out at the age of 25?") It is the ideal introduction for anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of mathematics.

Random Matrices, Frobenius Eigenvalues, and Monodromy

Random Matrices, Frobenius Eigenvalues, and Monodromy by Nicholas M. Katz and Peter Sarnak
English | November 24, 1998 | ISBN-10: 0821810170 | 419 pages | PDF | 6,9 Mb
The main topic of this book is the deep relation between the spacings between zeros of zeta and $L$-functions and spacings between eigenvalues of random elements of large compact classical groups. This relation, the Montgomery-Odlyzko law, is shown to hold for wide classes of zeta and $L$-functions over finite fields.

The book draws on and gives accessible accounts of many disparate areas of mathematics, from algebraic geometry, moduli spaces, monodromy, equidistribution, and the Weil conjectures, to probability theory on the compact classical groups in the limit as their dimension goes to infinity and related techniques from orthogonal polynomials and Fredholm determinants.
