It was first published in , and an English translation by William Weaver appeared a year later. Foucault's Pendulum is divided into ten segments represented by the ten Sefiroth. The satirical novel is full of esoteric references to Kabbalah , alchemy , and conspiracy theory —so many that critic and novelist Anthony Burgess suggested that it needed an index. Some believe that it refers to Michel Foucault ,  noting Eco's friendship with the French philosopher,  but the author "specifically rejects any intentional reference to Michel Foucault"  —this is regarded as one of his subtle literary jokes. He believes that members of a secret society have kidnapped his friend Jacopo Belbo and are now after him.
