The figure/ground distinction intrinsic to Eco’s The Island of the Day Before emerges again in The Name of the Rose, although in a more self-falsifying sense.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
