Umberto Eco on Culture - Dictionary of Arguments
Syntax/culture/thinking/world/code/Eco: the syntactic structure of the code precedes the identification of the relevant elements of meaning; the semantic system does not produce the syntactic structure of the code, but on the contrary, we are forced to see the structure of the world with the units prescribed by the system of the code's generation rules. In this case, it is not culture that determines the language, but language that determines the culture._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
