This monumental publication is one of the most important, high-profile books published to mark the millennium, examining the very subject that gives the millennium its meaning: time.

About the Author

First a semiotician at the University of Bologna, and a leading figure in contemporary Italian culture, Eco brought semiotics to fiction in his first novel, The Name of the Rose (1980). This unexpected international best-seller employs the techniques of a detective novel along with sophisticated postmodern narrative and verbal conundrums, to recount a series of murders in a medieval monastery. Eco's fascination with the Middle Ages began when he was a student at the University of Torino, where he wrote his doctoral thesis (1954) on St. Thomas Aquinas. The Name of the Rose (1980) won the Premio Strega and the Premio Anghiar awards in 1981, as well as numerous international awards. Ernst Hans Josef Gombrich, born March 30, 1909, in Vienna, Austria, was educated at Vienna University where he earned a Ph.D. His career includes terms as Slade Professor of Fine Arts at Oxford and Cambridge universities and as Andrew D. White Professor-at-large at Cornell University. Gombrich's books on art and art history have sold as well as some works of fiction. One of his most popular titles is The Story of Art, which has been translated into 18 languages and sold more than two million copies. Other titles are; Looking for Answers: Conversations on Art and Science (with Didier Eribon), Shadows: The Depiction of Cast Shadows in Western Art, and Gombrich on Art and Psychology. His numerous awards include the Erasmus Prize in 1975, the Hegel Prize in 1976, and the International Balzan Prize in 198
