Umberto Eco

Italian synthetic modernist whose work underpins many of the theories about what is real (?), and what is original? Consider this passage from Foucault's Pendulum:

"Gentlemen, I will now show you this text. Forgive me for using a photocopy. It's not distrust. I don't want to subject the original to further wear."

"But Ingolf's copy wasn't the original," I said."The parchment was the original." "Casubon, when originals no longer exist, the last copy is the original."
