La beauté: In Theory (French Program)


Join us for a free collective reading and discussion of an excerpt from the French translation of Umberto Eco’s History of Beauty. No previous knowledge of the text is necessary. Refreshments will be served.

What is beauty? Umberto Eco, among Italy’s finest and most important contemporary thinkers, explores the nature, the meaning, and the very history of the idea of beauty in Western culture.
