Instead, it's about what, in Eco's rhapsodic and often funny book, the thesis represents: a magical process of self-realization, a kind of careful, curious engagement with the world that need not end in one's early twenties. Well beyond the completion of the thesis, Eco's manual makes for pleasant reading and is deserving of a place on the desks of scholars and professional writers.
Even sections such as that recommending the combinatory system of handwritten index cards, while outdated in the digital age, can propose a helpful exercise in critical thinking, and add a certain vintage appeal to the book. Search Search.

Overview Author s Praise. Summary Umberto Eco's wise and witty guide to researching and writing a thesis, published in English for the first time. Share Share Share email. Authors Umberto Eco Umberto Eco was an Italian semiotician, philosopher, literary critic, and novelist. He is the author of The Name of the Rose, Foucault's Pendulum , and The Prague Cemetery , all bestsellers in many languages, as well as a number of influential scholarly works.
Reviews Although first published in Italian in , before Eco The Name of the Rose became an internationally renowned novelist, this guide to writing a thesis—originally aimed at Italian humanities undergraduates—brims with practical advice useful for writing research papers In the expensive symposium in dedication to the new Center, M. The technocrats were seeking to convert the artists into new celebrants of the system; in making technological art possible, they were insuring the stability of their technological society … Men who are specialists in the management of complex organizations learn quite early that the best way to preserve the stability of powerful routines is to give on the surface the illusion of reform and constant innovation.
These debates also entered into art criticism. These debates were even present in the very same issue of the journal Daedalus in which Kepes put forth his original proposal for the Center.
And yet, despite offering this critique of technological rationality and its colonisation of the arts, Marcuse also suggested some possibilities — however impossible they might be to realise — for critical intervention through conversion. The fact that they are condemned before the omnipotent technical and political apparatus of our society does not necessarily demolish the value which they may possibly have. The purpose of the event was to explore the idea of a new experimental educational institution, a Universitas , that could address the social, cultural and political crises of the late s and early s.
Other participants in the event like Louis Althusser, Jean Baudrillard, Manuel Castells, Michel Foucault and Alaine Touraine, reflected a new generation of critics, and they pushed back against the technocratic establishment. Kepes attempted, as best he could, to channel Marcuse. And the system has to be changed. And this change has to find its tools.
Now, until the last maybe hundred years, there were different proposals to find the technology of change. We have different conditions now, and we have to find a different technology of revolution. I have elaborated two very different models for collaboration: one based on complicity and one based on conversion. How did the conflict between these two models play out at the Center? The many artists Kepes invited to participate in his exhibition grappled with the model that Kepes put forth and what it actually represented.
The U. Government is fighting an immoral war in Vietnam and is vigorously supporting fascist regimes in Brazil and in other parts of the world.
At present any exhibition under U. It becomes a tool of international public relations, irrespective of the honorable intentions of the organisers and participants. With repressive tolerance the energies of artists are being diverted into serving the needs of a policy that these very artists rightfully despise.

Among other things, portfolios are needed to apply for departmental travel awards and prizes. I thank King Collins for sharing his recollections with me. Questions regarding sponsorship may be addressed to the administrative officer of the laboratory or department. A student who enters at the beginning of the full three-and-a-half year program will normally complete a studio in each of 6 semesters, and then a thesis in semester 7. Questions regarding loans should be addressed to Student Financial Services.
If they do not want to become involuntary accomplices they have no choice but to refuse the showing of their work in a national representation abroad. To make his case Clay sent Kepes an anonymous dossier of statements from European artists with a startling image on its cover fig. In response, Kepes drafted his own statement affirming the aesthetics of collaboration.
He planned to circulate the statement to newspapers and magazines in the US and Brazil, and although it never ran in the press in full, it was quoted by critic Grace Glueck in an article on the boycott in the New York Times. There is an old Chinese saying that it is better to light a single candle than to curse the darkness.
Kepes used the metaphor of light to assert collaboration as the only means of politics; for him, to not participate was to protect the status quo. The statement prompted very polarised reactions. Very good! But who will read that? I am certain that if the aspiration of the Center is expressed convincingly … we could contribute more constructively to the Brazilian and the international artistic community than by withdrawing our participation. But I have no illusions; naturally no matter how well we express our ideas … it will inevitably be seen in the context of the total present political situation.
For some people, no doubt, participation in an international exhibition in a country which is under brutal military dictatorship could be read as an approval of the regime. In an attempt to bolster his political credentials Kepes built his case for communication with yet more communication. Soon, letters from other artists announcing their decisions to withdraw from the exhibition arrived at the Center. To celebrate the power of technology through art strikes me as a sad parody of NASA. I do not share the confidence of the astronauts. The rationalism and logic of the engineer is too self-assured.
Art aping science turns into a cultural malaise. If one wants teamwork he should join the army. Other letters were less forceful but nonetheless compelling. John Goodyear used his communication with Kepes as an opportunity to reflect on the nature of communication itself, arguing that communication is never transparent; once it enters the world, it can be changed and manipulated. Showing these works in Brazil is perhaps more important now than at another less critical time.
Not only have they succeeded in silencing their own artists, now with the help of the withdrawing artists from other nations, they have strangled the cry of outrage that might have rung out defiantly from within their own frontiers to the embarrassment and shame of the present regime. In the end, the tiresome letter writing, the endless back and forth, the chain of statements and counterstatements, all added up to nothing. The Old Mole ran a satirical cartoon that humorously parodied the situation, a common one that year; it shows talking heads ensconced in a bell jar, like the type that might contain a rare specimen for display fig.
But ultimately there simply were not enough participants to justify an exhibition. We feel as deeply concerned at the lack of creative and democratic liberties as those who have withdrawn, and the intention of the fourteen of us had been to participate in the exhibition and place on record our deep resentment against cultural suppression. To our great disappointment we have to conclude that our basic concept to create a community exhibition has been crippled by the withdrawal of nine participants of the community.
He worked to guarantee that the exhibition could still be realised, if in modified form, at MIT and at the National Collection of Fine Arts. I had a great deal of hopes and expectations for the Sao Paulo Exhibition and confidence that we could make a real contribution, and am heartbroken about the way things developed.
He wanted redemption. The atmosphere on campus that autumn was tense.
Violent protest erupted in November as police brutalised students assembled in protest at the Instrumentation Laboratory. Later that month, the Old Mole ran a cover fig. Piene used massive balloon-like forms made of polyethylene and inflated with helium or hot air to create outdoor environmental sculptures.
Just weeks prior, on 15 October, Peine presented his sculptural forms at a massive protest called the Moratorium to End the War in Vietnam. They guided the MIT community from the steps of the Rogers Building, across the Harvard Bridge, to the Boston Common, where more than , students, members of faculty and protestors gathered fig.
