    This is the final collection from the celebrated Italian essayist and novelist. In it, Eco explores aspects of the modern world with a dazzling erudition and keen sense of the everyday. His topics include the crisis in ideological values and politics, conspiracies, mobile phones, mass media, racism and good manners, but it is the essay on unbridled individualism that is perhaps the most thought-provoking – Eco argues that this has resulted in a ‘liquid society’ where it’s not easy to find a polestar, though stars and starlets are not lacking.
