Umberto Eco on Art - Dictionary of Arguments

I 48
Science/Art/Eco: in the open work of art you can see the resonance of some tendencies in modern science: the concept of the field comes from physics: it is a new understanding of the relationship between cause and effect: it has a more complex interaction of forces. There is a departure from a static and syllogistic view of order. It has an indefinite relation and is complementarity.
I 55
Reception/Eco: the work of art offers the interpreter a work to be completed.
I 105
Openness and disorder are relative terms. Something is more in order in comparison to a previous disorder.
I 138
Definition openness of the first degree: integration and knowledge mechanisms are characteristic for every process of knowledge.
I 139
Definition second-degree openness: second-degree openness corresponds to the grasping that constantly open process, it allows us to perceive new contours and new possibilities for a form.
I 149
Openness: openness means that the recipient has freedom of choice.
I 160
Art/Science/Eco: certain structures in art appear as epistemological metaphors, as structural decisions of a diffuse theoretical consciousness (not of a particular theory, but cultural belief). Art and science are mirroring certain achievements of modern scientific methodology in categories of uncertainty and statistical distribution.
Bivalent logic, causality and the principle of the excluded middle are called into question.
I 163
Art/Science/Cubism: art exhibits parallels to non-Euclidean geometry. There is a parallel between Hilbert's attempts to axiomatize geometry and neoplasticism and constructivism.
I 165
Eco thesis: in a world where the discontinuity of phenomena has called into question the possibility of a unified and definitive view of the world, open art shows us a way of seeing and recognizing this world and of integrating our sensitivity. This discontinuity is not narrated but it is art. ((s)VsEco: Eco shows a strongly affirmative attitude: that it is about recognizing the world.)
I 260
Alienation/Art/Eco: Epigones have become alienated from a habit that now fixes them without allowing them to move in an original and free way.
