Download: Foucault's Pendulum

Foucault's Pendulum (original title: Il pendolo di Foucault) is a 1988 novel by Italian novelist and philosopher Umberto Eco. Its theme is the popularity of conspiracy theories throughout time, as well as their constant presence as a form of pseudo-religion.

Told in the form of a kind of intellectual game, three friends compile a fictitious Plan which stretches throughout history and hopes to combine all conspiracy theories, also embracing unlikely opposites. The novel is an encyclopedic work, moving critic and novelist Anthony Burgess to comment that it needed an index. It was first published in 1988 and, the following year, a translation into English by William Weaver appeared.
