Orignially a lecture given at the University of Florence, this essay deals with semiotics, or a study of language and symbols. Eco argues that controlling the message is less important than controlling the possible interpretations of the message. To disrupt the mainstream mass media, Eco suggests using guerilla tactics, such as cultural jamming, against mass media.

Information is no longer an instrument for producing economic merchandise, but has itself become the cheif merchandise. Communication has been transformed into heavy industry.

  1. Thank you for this article. I’d personally also like to talk about the fact that it can always be hard if you are in school and just starting out to establish a long credit ranking. There are many scholars who are just trying to pull through and have long or beneficial credit history can occasionally be a difficult thing to have.

  2. There are some interesting time limits on this article however I don抰 know if I see all of them heart to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion till I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish extra! Added to FeedBurner as nicely
