1. "Having an enemy is important not only to define our identity but also to provide us with an obstacle against which to measure our system of values and, in seeking to overcome it, to demonstrate our own worth. So when there is no enemy, we have to invent one."

    -Umberto Eco, “Inventing the Enemy”

    Eco’s collection of essays, Inventing the Enemy, is now available in paperback.
