"Adding Lotman's views to the modern intellectual landscape opens up alternative paths in the exploration of the fabric of culture. All the contributors to this volume rise successfully to this formidable challenge, and their collective contribution is truly outstanding in regard to both the richness of its content and the coherence and clarity of its general message."Boris Gasparov, Columbia University
“Every one of the essays included in this volume demonstrates the wide range of the applicability and the power of Lotman’s ideas for the study of both textual and nontextual cultural phenomena.”—Edna Andrews, Slavic Review
