“The search for the perfect language in European culture” by Umberto Eco

“In this elegant and entertaining book, Umberto Eco traces the utopia of the perfect language through almost two thousand years. From the pre-babylic language to artificial formalized languages, passing through mystical, magical and dream languages, Indo-European, Kabbalah, the perfect languages ​​of Dante and Llull, Esperanto or auxiliary international languages, Professor Eco guides us to the end of the long search of European culture in pursuit of the lost language.”
