By Umberto Eco

Le eleven septembre, l. a. guerre en Afghanistan et en Irak, le populisme médiatique au pouvoir : les premières années du troisième millénaire ne pouvaient pas échapper à l'analyse ravageuse d'Umberto Eco. Il en ressort que depuis quelque temps, le monde marche à reculons, de plus en plus vite, de plus en plus dramatiquement.

Après los angeles chute du mur de Berlin, il a fallu exhumer de vieux atlas pour retrouver les frontières oubliées depuis los angeles guerre de 1914. De los angeles guerre froide, on s'est empressé de retourner aux guerres les plus chaudes. Nous avons ressuscité le vieux wrestle entre Islam et Chrétienté, et le cri ancestral de «Sauve qui peut, voilà les Turcs !» nous ramène au temps des Croisades. Le fantôme du Péril jaune resurgit, comme l'anti-darwinisme, l'antisémitisme, voire le contentieux que l'on croyait pourtant bien enterré entre l'Eglise et l'Etat...

Il semblerait que l'Histoire, à bout de souffle après les bonds qu'elle a effectués au cours des deux précédents millénaires, se soit affaissée sur elle-même et se précipite à reculons, comme une écrevisse.

Umberto Eco est né à Alexandrie, dans le Piémont, en 1932. Professeur de sémiotique et directeur de l'Ecole supérieure des études littéraires à l'Université de Bologne, il est l'auteur de nombreux essais dont remark voyager avec un saumon et de romans, Le Nom de los angeles Rose, Le Pendule de Foucault, L'Ile du jour d'avant, Baudolino et l. a. Reine Loana.
