Description

Las catorce claves de Umberto Eco para reconocer el fascismo: un manifiesto urgente.

«Un genio inagotable, voraz, que construye y deconstruye sin cesar, de inteligencia deslumbrante y humorística cuando hace falta.».-Mercedes Monmany, ABC

«Uno de los pensadores más influyentes de nuestro tiempo.».-Los Angeles Times

«El fascismo eterno aún nos rodea, aunque lleve traje de paisano. Puede volver en cualquier momento, aunque se disfrace de las formas más inocuas. Nuestro deber es detectarlo, quitarle la máscara y denunciar en voz alta cada una de sus gestas.»

En esta conferencia dirigida a los alumnos de una universidad norteamericana en 1995, Umberto Eco alertaba frente a la sombra alargada de un fenómeno que no se restringe al ámbito político ni tiene fecha de caducidad, porque tras un régimen y una ideología hay siempre un cierto modo de pensar y de sentir, un sustrato cultural que puede ser el germen de una nueva ola fascista.

El gran pensador de nuestro tiempo, aquel que nos enseñó a «reflexionar antes de pensar», nos ofrece catorce claves para reconocer el fantasma del «fascismo eterno» y nos brinda instrumentos para que el presente y el futuro no se parezcan a nuestro peor pasado.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Umberto Eco's fourteen clues for recognizing fascism: an urgent manifesto.

"A tireless, fierce genius, who constructs and deconstructs endlessly, with dazzling and even humorous intelligence when needed." -Mercedes Monmany, ABC

"One of the most influential thinkers of our time." -Los Angeles Times

"Eternal fascism still surrounds us, it's just in civilian clothes. It can return at any time, although it comes in the most innocent disguises. Our duty is to detect it, unmask it, and loudly condemn every aspect of it."

In this conference delivered to U.S. university students in 1995, Umberto Eco warned against the elongated shadow of a phenomenon that is not relegated only to politics, nor with an expiration date, because behind a regime and an ideology there is always a certain line of thought and feeling, a cultural substrate that can be the seed of a new wave of fascism. The great thinker of our time, who taught us to "reflect before thinking," gives us fourteen clues to recognize the specter of "eternal fascism" and offers us tools so that the present and the future do not resemble our worst past.
