Way, way back in time.

We were eighteen, I was in love with her, she wasn't in love with me. She introduced me to this group, "El último de la fila". Every note brings her to my memory. And it hurts. Still.

Athanasius Kircher: "Antidotum Tarantulae" Tarantella.

L'Arpeggiata: http://www.rtve.es/mediateca/audios/20090304/una-tarantella-para-empezarlos-colores-manana-04-03-09/436591.shtml (hit the blue button with an arrowhead).

Another Tarantella: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNXPp2iCDt0 (to me it sounds more Spanish than Italian, maybe because it is "Napoletana").

If you are curious about the "antidotum tarantulae" title, you can read this article on Tarantella: http://www.forteantimes.com/features/articles/114/the_tarantella.html.

The Which philosophy suits your personality? Test.

Synthetic Perception, by Kant

You didn't have the highest score in any of the 7 variables, or a score above 53% that's why Kant should suit you, he was a very broadly ranged philosopher. This is probably the hardest idea you could have gotten, but hey, I'm sure that's no problem for you!

Immanuel Kant, 1724 - 1804, Prussia (former Germany, now Russia).

The idea of synthetic perception is common knowledge now, but was quite revolutionary at the time. Until the 17th century it was usual to create great theories in your head, without even looking at the world or doing experiments. Later it was argued your mind is like a blank sheet and only your experiences create knowledge. Kant said both were wrong (or right). The world around us provides us with things we sense. It is our mind though that uses this information and gives it order in space and time, allowing us to comprehend it. So we need both our minds and our senses to gain knowledge.

Take the test
