    Don Quijote was a tall, skinny “wanna-be” who found himself morally obligated to involve himself in other people’s business for the sole purpose of acting as a proper knight errant would. Although he believes that his “battles” help solve situations (though the results is usually the opposite), what it comes down to is that he wants to be famous, to be in love with his woman, to be accomplished, recognized, and adored. Therefore, Don Quijote’s motives are self-serving, and not “by-the-book” as a

    individuals from seeing the world realistically. In Miguel De Cervantes’ book “Don Quijote,” the main character, Don Quijote, takes faith and literally makes it the deciding factor in how he sees the world. Because of the power Don Quijote gives his faith, it misleads him, and he makes poor decisions. For example; he injures himself fighting imaginary giants and hurts others to fulfill his imaginary role as a knight errant. Don Quijote takes faith from its rightful place by allowing it to extremely distort

    Don Quijote and the Neuroscience of Metafiction What is metafiction? Its original meaning was "a fiction that both creates an illusion and lays bare that illusion."1 But the term has expanded and expanded to include any fiction that even mentions the idea of fiction. That can cover a lot of things, starting with the Iliad.2 I'd like to go back to the original idea. In my understanding, metafictions tell stories in which the physical medium of the story becomes part of the story. Among contemporary

    esto, muchas de las ideas que expresa Freud están evidentes en la literatura que llegó antes de su fama. Las dos partes de Don Quijote, por ejemplo, fueron realizadas en 1614, más de doscientos años antes del nacimiento de Freud. Entonces, hay una posibilidad de que Cervantes contribuyó a unas de las teorías y pensamientos de Freud. Sabemos por seguro que Freud leyó el Don Quijote de Cervantes y que lo le fascinó. Hay algunas partes distintas de la historia a cuales se puede relacionar los ensayos de

The slam-bang 'Don Quijote' mission would help scientists figure out how to deflect or destroy any asteroid in the future that might be found to be on a collision course with Earth. The project uses the Spanish spelling of Don Quixote, the protagonist in Cervantes' novel who has chivalrous ideas that tend toward the impractical. The lofty modern-day Don Quijote would help solve a practical problem. Scientists don't know enough about asteroid

    Relaciones Entre las Actitudes Bellas y las Morales ABSTRACT: There are no a-moral texts, even though amorality may be described by them: an amoral author would not dare into the search of beauty; it depends on a game of faculties that, also, play with the form. A moralizing literary text is not due to a game of author's faculties, but only to the author's conscience. Thus, it rebounds heavy and ugly. An ugly immoral literary text assaults on a redundant and calculated way some moral rules in

    shall become bandits and giants will turn into windmills (or was it the other way around?) for the sake of offering a metaphorical displacement of the shortcomings of the State’s ontological plan. It is in this sense that as Henry Kamen observes, in Don Quixote I-II Cervantes presents us with “una perspectiva de una sociedad en que las cosas no parecen ser lo que son” (2005). Consequently, in this part of the essay my analysis of Cervantes’s magical rhetoric I will not be focusing on the State-enforced
