Eco: The Search for the Perfect Language (1995)
Chapter one discusses Bible stories, and chapter two gets into Kabbalah and Gematria. People interested in Gematria and it’s mathematico-linguistic mysteries should not miss this. I think I just “mathematico” up…but don’t you always us “o” and not “al” in the first word in a double adjective hyphen? Sadly, Eco does not answer this. Chapter six will pick up on Kabbalah again.
